Enmienda

In the spring of 1982, Argentina and the United Kingdom fought in a 74 days war for control of the Falkland Islands located in the South Atlantic, in one of the most unique war of the last century.

The Falklands War, despite its brevity, summarizes almost all perspectives that may focus on a war conflict: naval, air and land warfare, landings, anti-submarine combat, use of new weapons never used, intelligence, command operations, spies ... and meanwhile the world tried in vain to stop the conflict in countless rounds, conversations and mediations, all unsuccessful.

Prologo de Enmienda escrito por el almirante (VGM-RE) Mr. Enrique Emilio Molina Pico who fought during the war as commander in charge of the destroyer ARA Hércules and with a 43 years service history in the Argentine Navy.

Quoting his words: "... After reading the book I reaffirm my belief that we fought effectively and with honor, demonstrating to the British forces that in war "there are no small enemies" as we had already done in 1806 and 1807. But to know the magnitude of what has been done, let whoever was the commander of the British Fleet, admiral Sir John F. Woodward rate the Argentine forces, who shortly before passing away without a doubt expressed his opinion in a strict way: «What people fail to realise, is how close Britain came to lose the war» (la gente no sabe lo cerca que estuvo Gran Bretaña de perder la guerra)”.
