The Falklands War was a conflict between Argentina and the United Kingdom that began on April 2, 1982. The cause of the war was the invasion of the Falkland Islands by Argentina, an action that was seen as an attempt to reclaim the territory for its own. The islands had been under British control since 1833, and the Argentinian government felt that it had a historical claim to them. The UK responded with a large naval task force and launched an invasion of the Falklands in order to reclaim the islands from Argentine forces. After two months of fighting, the British successfully regained control of the islands.Disclaimer: This summary might be generated by an AI.
