The miniatures in this collection are for the forces of the Falklands War.
The Falklands War also known as the Falklands Conflict, Falklands Crisis, Malvinas War, South Atlantic Conflict, and the Guerra del Atlántico Sur (Spanish for "South Atlantic War"), was a ten-week war between Argentina and the United Kingdom over two British dependent territories in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands, and its territorial dependency, the South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.
It began on Friday, 2 April 1982, when Argentina invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands (and, the following day, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands) in an attempt to establish soveriengity. On 5 April, the British government dispatched a naval task force to engage the Argentine forces and make an amphibious assault on the islands.
The conflict lasted 74 days and ended with the Argentine surrender on 14 June 1982, returning the islands to British control.
