 Mrs Thatcher's War: The Falklands, 1982

The Solitaire War Game

 

 

 

  

 

 Brief historic resume:

On the 2nd of April 1982 with a commando blitz operation (Operacion Rosario),

Argentina invaded the Falklands Islands, a remote UK dependence in the South Atlantic.

The move led to a brief 74 days, but bitter war.

 Margaret Thatcher said the 1,800 Falklanders were "of British tradition and stock".

A task force was sent to reclaim the islands, 8,000 miles away.

The Falklands - Malvinas conflict remains the largest air-naval

combat operation between modern forces since

the end of the Second World War.

Not designed as a detailed simulation, this fun and challenging solitaire game

illustrates the general strategic course of the 1982 Falklands War between Britain and

Argentina, and highlights important historical themes.

It is two games in one in which the British player fight against the game system

 the Argentine invasion force; first trying to  take control of the "airspace" and then

 moving the infantry toward Port Stanley.

The game features adjusting - scoring charts and  all the historical chrome for which


 this design team is so well  known, including Exocet missiles,

 Falkland Islander civilian resistance, diplomatic shuttles, covert Soviet aid,

 SAS guerilla missions, Chilean intervention, US assistance, 

the Gurkhas, helicopters, "ace" pilots, and even the Pope!
