The Fight for the Falklands: Diplomacy, Politics and War


On 2 April 1982, Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands, known to the Argentinians as the Malvinas.  And so began a war that seemed totally out of place in the late twentieth century ­ a ‘colonial war’, as many saw it, long after the age of empire; a war outside the parameters of the Cold War, fought indeed between allies of the United States. But first, many questions had to be answered. Could diplomacy avert bloodshed? Did Britain have the political will to fight? Could Britain’s armed forces dislodge the Argentinian garrison before the onset of the South Atlantic winter? This course will explain the answers to those questions and analyse the diplomacy, politics and armed conflict involved in the fight for the Falklands.
