THE OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE FALKLANDS CAMPAIGN: VOL. I

By Sir Lawrence Freedman

(Subject: Post World War II - Falklands) The origins of the April, 1982 war. The book describes the long dispute between Argentina and Britain over the sovereignty of the Islands, the difficulties faced by successive governments in finding a way to reconcile the opposed interests of the Argentines and the islanders, and the constant struggle to keep the Islands viable. In March 1982 what started as an apparently trivial incident over an illegal landing by scrap-metal merchants on the island of South Georgia turned into a major crisis. Drawing on official papers the author charts the growing realisation within the British government of the seriousness of the situation, culminating in the Argentine invasion.
