An early book by an exceptional writer. Caught in Argentina during the Falkland War Winchester is incarcerated as a suspected spy. The diary is a series of reflections on what occurs to him and his family during his extended stay. Some odd reflections on the Thather government considering his being jailed for doing press work.

Great read! I highly recommend if you are a Simon Winchester fan or just want a new perspective on the Falklands conflict.

This is an early Simon Winchester book bought through Amazon's Marketplace. I remember the imprisonment of some journalists back then but had no idea that one of them was Simon Winchester. The prelude to his prison diary was far more interesting to me and wish it had been expanded a bit more to discuss the political background. Still a worthy read for anyone interested in this recent war.

I generally like Mr Winchesters writing so I was rather disappointed by this book. The subject suggested a very interesting tale but, unfortunately, it was not developed very well at all. The first 50 pages or so are straight narrative recounting the background of Winchester's arrival in Argentina, in general, and the Falklands in particular. This part is fine but then the rest of the book is given over to a lengthy series of journal entries. This type of writing is, to my mind, not the best way to tell a story and that is especially so here. We get lengthy details about things that were of some import and significance to Winchester at the time but which, in objective hindsight, add nothing to the story. I also found his inclusion of the full text of letters he received to be tedious. I suppose he was trying to show how letters from strangers affected his outlook but one or two would have been plenty; all the rest, including those from his wife were completely uninteresting and I stopped reading them quite early on. All in all, it would have been a much better story had Winchester continued with the same narrative style with which he began the book and included a lot more information relating to the military and political situation rather than wasting space with a lot of personal and pointless detail.
