  • Falkland Islands

On 2 April 1982 Argentine forces invaded the Falkland Islands, a small British Overseas Territory some 300 miles from Argentina.

The UK sent a naval force and troops to reclaim the islands, succeeding on June 14. The short but intense war resulted in the death of 255 British and some 650 Argentine forces.
