Why Britain sent a task force to liberate the Falkland Islands

Dr Rachel Utley speaks to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“In early 1982, many Britons would have struggled to place the Falkland Islands on a map.

But within days of their invasion by Argentinian forces, a task force had set sail to reclaim them, bolstered by the support of the vast majority of the British public.”

Dr Rachel Utley, Associate Professor of International History, from the School of History speaks to the Yorkshire Post about the history of the dispute.
