Falklands War

2 April 1982 – 14 June 1982

The Falklands War (2nd April to 14th June 1982) was an undeclared war between the Argentine Military junta (dictatorship) and Great Britain. Argentina gave up on prolonged negotiations and launched an invasion that was quelled by Britain within ten weeks.

Since the early 19th Century Argentina had claimed sovereignty over the Falkland Islands until Britain seized the islands in 1833.
