Forgotten Voices of the Falklands uses the resources of the Imperial War Museum’s Sound Archive to present the first complete oral history of the Falklands War. The book presents a chronicle of the conflict from many different perspectives, told in the participants’ own voices from the initial invasion of the islands to the British landings to the Argentine surrender and its aftermath.
In March 1982, Argentina surprised the world by invading the Falkland Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The tiny islands had long been the subject of a fierce territorial dispute between Argentina and the UK, and the occupation quickly escalated into a full-blown conflict between the two countries.
Often referred to as a forgotten war, the Falklands conflict was, actually, the first war of the modern age, using satellite surveillance, night observation devices, and all the very latest weaponry military technology had to offer.
