1982: The Falklands War begins with Argentine forces invading and occupying the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, two British overseas territories in the South Atlantic. The British government dispatched a naval task force to engage the Argentine Navy and Air Force, and retake the islands by amphibious assault. The resulting conflict lasted 74 days and ended with the Argentine surrender on June 14, 1982, which returned the islands to British control.
