The Falklands War was one of the strangest in British history – 28, men sent to fight for a tiny relic of empire 8, miles from home. At the time, many Britons saw it as a tragic absurdity, but the British victory confirmed the quality of British arms and boosted the political fortunes of the Conservative government/5(). A new book has challenged the official account of the Falklands War, including allegedly one of the worst kept secrets of the conflict. The First Casualty, written by noted military historian.

Description: In this official history of the Falklands Campaign, Lawrence Freedman provides a detailed and authoritative account of one of the most extraordinary periods in recent British political history and a vivid portrayal of a government at war. After the shock of the Argentine invasion of the Falklands in April , Margaret Thatcher faced the crisis that came to define .   The Falklands War took place between Britain and Argentina in The Falklands are a British territory, about kilometers off the coast of Argentina, that Argentina invaded in April The British had to quickly launch an operation to re-claim the islands. And part of this operation was Ope.

The Falklands War is an ideal showcase for how British policy evolved in the s and s. The background of the dispute over the island group in the remote South Atlantic (called Las Malvinas by the Argentines) is given first, then the events that precipitated the conflict and extensive examination of the military aspects of the war are provided.   Mr Phillips said the official story is found in every book and on every website which deals with the Falklands War. He added: "It is a story which has stood for 35 years as 'established history'.
