Warfare in News

Posted on Monday 20th August

Graham Bound, author of a former Soldier magazine Pick of the Month Fortress Falklands, is scheduled to give a talk at the National Army Museum, Chelsea on 13 November.

Bound was born in the Falklands, and returned there whilst writing the book to see for himself the profound ways in which his homeland has changed, giving the book a true islander's insight. He has written extensively about the 1982 war, is a former reporter for Soldier and founded the Falklands' newspaper Penguin News.

The talk at the NAM in November will cover all aspects of Falklands today, including the Argentine threat, oil development and defences.
