As part of the "Flashpoints" series, this book looks at the Falklands campaign and examines how it evolved, how it was resolved and its impact on world affairs. The origins of the undeclared war between Britain and Argentina in 1982 over the Falkland Islands and the diplomatic background to the military campaign are discussed. Included also are the details of the main military operations and the facts about the conflict, with an explanation of the reasons behind the decisions made. The author gives an analysis of the "media war", highlighting the tensions between military secrecy and the democratic right to information. The book contains a glossary, date chart and index, and is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs and line maps. It can be used as background reading for GCSE studies and Standard Grade in Scotland.
