South Atlantic War, Third Edition

Selected Option:

South Atlantic War, Third Edition is an in-depth treatment of the naval and air campaign during the Falkland/Malvinas Islands War of 1982. It contains nineteen scenarios, linked with narratives of the land actions, putting them in context.

            Supplementary material includes complete orders of battle, command organizations, and a list of ships and aircraft lost during the conflict.

            The book uses a wealth of information from recently published references, both British and Argentine, that add valuable insights and dispel common myths. 

            South Atlantic War III includes the second edition foreword by the late Admiral Sir John “Sandy” Woodward and a new foreword from noted author Mariano Sciaroni.

Also noticed that there is no ground war in the third edition. No mention, no stats, nothing... ):

South Atlantic War, Third Edition Note:
This is a supplement for Harpoon 5th Edition. It is designed to be used with the Harpoon 5th edition rules. It is not a complete game. It provides both the scenarios and information on the ships, aircraft, weapons, and sensors required by the scenarios.
Now i have all 3 editions

What is the difference between 2nd and 3rd editions? I went to and yet it has no information on differences between 2nd and 3rd editions. Of course I have 1st and 2nd editions too but there wasn't much difference between them.

Before I plunk out more money are there any differences?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
