Description

From Wikipedia

 Line of Fire - Goose Green

 The Battle of Goose Green (28–29 May 1982) was an engagement of the Falklands War between British and Argentine forces. Goose Green had little strategic value in the British campaign to recapture the Falkland Islands and early plans for land operations had called for Goose Green to be isolated and bypassed. However after significant British losses at sea British Joint Headquarters in Northwood, UK, came under pressure from the government for an early success and so they ordered the senior commander on the ground, Brigadier Julian Thompson, commanding 3 Commando Brigade, to mount an attack.
