Adapted from MCL's partwork "The Falklands War" (1983), this book relives the dramatic events of 25 years ago, which began when the Argentine Junta, desperate to restore its popularity at home, took the extraordinary decision to invade the Falkland Islands. Throughout the Spring of 1982, the conflict in the Falklands dominated world headlines, as British forces conducted a bravely fought and skilfully directed military campaign to recapture the Islands. The book provides a chronological account of the campaign and the key factors that enabled British forces to succeed. 25 years later, the Falklands War remains fresh in many people's memories as one of the most gripping historical events in recent times.
