In April 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 terrifying full-blown conflict between the two countries. "Part Two - Fighting for the Falklands" - Overcoming the difficulties of conducting a war at the most enormous distance from home and during the Antarctic winter, British troops successfully landed on the Falklands; the Argentine response led to growing casualties on both sides. At sea, losses included HMS Sheffield and Coventry, and the Argentinian cruiser General Belgrano. Drawing upon the vast resources of the Imperial War Museum's Sound Archive, "Forgotten Voices of the Falklands" presents the first complete oral history of the Falklands War. This audio book is a unique and essential chronicle of the conflict from all sides and perspectives, told in the participants' own voices.
