The Falkland War is a campaign that I haven't spent a lot of time reading about. Thanks for the list. I've added a few to my "to read" shelf. Add a reference: Book Author.

On 14 September, an unsupported platoon of six tanks advanced past a ridge occupied by Company K, 3d Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment. Japanese forces ambushed the independent tank platoon, and as the platoon leader reacted, the tanks were unable to eectively coordinate movement through the dense jungle underbrush. It showed great potential for tanks when used as they were trained to ght, but it also revealed their vulnerability in some terrain. By the completion of the battle on Guadalcanal, Marines presumed that the mutual support with infantry was key in dense jungle terrain, but there was no signicant eort to capture this in any kind of doctrine.
Furthermore, tanks in support of an amphibious force had yet to be tested. Armor played a limited role in the overall success of the Guadalcanal campaign because of the restricted jungle terrain, but the use of tanks provided foreshadowing of ways to more eectively employ tanks in the Marine Corps. Although the environment conned tank units, the doctrine they were trained on only discussed the role of tanks in a beach landing.
