Mrs Thatcher's War: The Falklands, 1982
The Solitaire War Game
Brief historic resume:
On the 3rd 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
game illustrates the general strategic course of the 1982
Falklands War between Britain and Argentina,and highlights
important historical themes.
