Carlos Büsser Wikipedia
Rear Admiral Carlos Alberto César Büsser (January 10, 1928 – September 29, 2012) was the commander of Argentine forces during Operation Rosario, the amphibious operation that took the Falkland Islands in 1982, and forced the surrender of their Governor, Rex Hunt.
Following the Argentine defeat in the Falklands War, he was appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a position he held until his retirement in December 1983. In 1984, Büsser published the book Operación Rosario, a detailed account of the Argentine landings on the Falklands and in 1987 Malvinas, la guerra inconclusa, an overall analysis of the conflict.
Büsser died of a heart attack in September 2012. He had since 2009 been under house arrest for alleged human rights abuses committed in the Bahía Blanca area during the 1970s dictatorship.
