BANG! BANG! BANG! went the guns of the Tin-Pot Foreign General BANG! BANG! BANG! went the guns of the Old Iron Woman Raymond Briggs's visceral take on the Falklands War is uncompromising in its dark and moving satire of the build-up and aftermath of the conflict. This controversial book's infamous stars - General Leopoldo Galtieri and Margaret Thatcher - are depicted as robotic caricatures with a pointless blood lust. The Tin-Pot Foreign General and the Old Iron Woman was Raymond's second picture book for adults and the follow-up to his bestselling When the Wind Blows. It is reissued for the first time since its original publication in 1984.
