Prison Diary, Argentina: A Falklands Story

Winchester was jailed for three months on trumped up charges of spying with two other British journalists from the beginning and during the entire duration of the Falklands War. They were detained at the bottom of Argentina in a town called Ushuaia which happened to have the world’s southernmost prison. While the war raged on, Winchester kept a diary of the day-to-day goings on in the prison and tried to keep up with the news of the war raging to the east with a shortwave radio. He recounts the ups and downs of the indefinite detention while detailing the efforts of his fellow journalists worldwide who tirelessly worked for their freedom.
