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
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
