Falklands War

In April 1982, Britain was astonished to find itself at war with Argentina over a group of windswept, sparsely populated islands thousands of miles away from the British mainland. On 2 April 1982, an Argentinian military force landed on this little group of islands and unilaterally declared Britain’s rule to be over. This was the first invasion of a British territory since WW2 and the result would be a short but bloody conflict that decided the political fate of both countries and their leaders.
