Operation Tabarin by Stephen Haddelsey



ISBN: 9780750967464 Category: Tags: ,


In 1943, Churchill’s War Cabinet met to discuss the opening of a new front. Its battles would be fought amidst the glaciers of the Antartic. Intended to safeguard the Falkland Islands from Japanese invasion and to deny German U-boats, the expedition also sought to re-assert British territorial rights in the face of Argentine provocation. Indeed, the British bases secretly established in 1944 would also go on to play a vital part in a global ‘conflict’: the Cold War. ‘Operation Tabarin’ tells for the first time the story of one of the most curious episodes in what Ernest Shackleton called ‘the white warfare of the south.’
