Raymond Briggs Falklands War

This book is Raymond Briggs feelings about the the Falklands War.He thought it was about 2 washed up leaders trying to shore up their careers by starting a conflict. The rest of the world thought it was a GIlbert and Sullivan farce It turns out that whoever owns the falklands gets to have a big piece of Antartica. But for a childrens book, it broke new publishing ground, and takes its place amongst all those classic anti- war stories that started with the ancient Greeks.
