I have.  I found it insightful to read about Woodward's criticism of one of his carrier captains being too cautious, when Adm.  Woodward wanted to have air cover, and then reading of Woodward's thought, upon learning the ARA 25 of May's approximate location, that he would wait until daybreak before launching his attack.  Sharkey Ward, in his book, wanted to commit at once, so that British Harriers would be bombing Argentine ships at or before dawn, and not be on the receiving end.
