Just finished watching the film Sea of Fire, a candid account of HMS Coventry‘s fate in the Falklands Conflict. The film manages to successfully meld veteran accounts with an engaging reconstruction/dramatisation. It’s all very cinematic in places, and really I didn’t expect this when I bought the DVD.
A lot of the material out there on the Falklands War tends to be rough cuts pasted together with stills and a narration, but this short film manages to bring the action and devastation truly to life, in a convincing and current way. Very impressed with the main feature, and if you are interested in the conflict it’s worth a look.
