9780091793555: H.Jones VC: The Life and Death of an Unusual Hero

This is the biography of the H. Jones VC, a Falklands War hero whose death in the battle for Darwin had huge significance and was one of the turning points for the whole campaign. It is the story of an emblematic but complex war hero whose family history was surprising, whose army life included exposure to most of the military problems which Britain has encountered since the World War II, including security in Northern Ireland. His dramatic death and subsequent posthumous VC symbolized an extraordinary campaign which was truly the end of an era. Including much new material, this biography was written with the help of H. Jones's widow and is introduced by Sir John Keegan.
