Summary

On April 2, 1982, Argentina invaded the Falklands, a tiny British outpost in the South Atlantic, prompting then-prime minister Margaret Thatcher to send a naval task force to liberate the islands. This documentary reflects on the ensuing conflict, revealing that while Britain may have won the war, a series of mistakes led the nation close to defeat. Senior officers from the campaign reveal how overstretched air defences, poor communications and simple incompetence sometimes stacked the odds against the British, while veterans of the bloodiest battles talk through the fighting.
