Falklands-Malvinas War

From dKosopedia

The Falklands-Malvinas War was a 1982 naval and insular conflict between the United Kingdom and Argentina. The war erupted when Argentine forces seized the south Atlantic Ocean British possessions named either the Falklamds Islands (British) or the Malvinas Islands (Argentine). Britain prevailed in the war and the victory helped British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's Conservative Party win the subsequent 1984 British general election despite the poor economic performance of the British economy. The brutal military junta ruling Argentina fell as a consequence of the Argentine military defeat.
