Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0715392867, Hardcover)The presence of helicopters was crucial to the success of the Falklands campaign, and in this book John Hamilton, looks at their role and that of their crews and ground staff. Using his brush to tell the story in pictures as a writer uses a pen, the artist highlights the professionalism of the pilots, the navigators and the maintenance crews, and shows the aircraft themselves in action. From the disaster of the loss of the Atlantic Conveyor to the unsung heroism of the people who kept the helicopters flying at all costs, his paintings tell the story of the war from a new perspective. The project took over four years to complete, and in his search for authenticity, Hamilton visited every spot where helicopters were involved in action. In the UK, he had the co-operation of all the services to ensure the accuracy and detail of his work. The result is a collection of fifty paintings which makes a contribution both to contemporary military history and to the more general field of aviation art. It is a tribute to the machines and the men who contributed to the final victory.
