'A required book for anyone who wishes to understand the Argentine situation before and after the Falklands War' GRAHAM GREENE Jimmy Burns was the only full-time British foreign correspondent to remain in Argentina covering the Falklands War. In The Land that Lost Its Heroes, he gives a detailed account of the military planning of the invasion, exposing not only the hidden motives and nature of Argentina's military regime, but also the pitifully inadequate reactions of both British diplomacy and intelligence. Burns exposes the duplicity of other Western nations and the international banking community and gives a vivid first-hand account of the end of the regime, the debt crisis and the return to democracy under Raul Alfonsin.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Full of insights about the extraordinary story of Argentina under Galtieri and Alfonsin * Max Hastings *
An excellent study of the crisis * Robert Harris, Observer *
Exceptionally well written and well presented * Sunday Times *
A beautifully written and well-researched book, competently annotated and documented, which is special on several counts. His is a first-hand and authoratative account of the Falklands war as seen from Buenos Aires. Burns brings to bear his unique experience of a mixed British and Spanish upbringing in his quest for an answer to Argentina's incomprehensible descent into violent political chaos and moral as well as economic bankruptcy * Sunday Telegraph *
