The Falklands, 1982: Realities of a shared war

In 1982, Argentina’s military junta invaded the Falkland Islands. Within days, a Royal Navy Task Force had been assembled and dispatched from the United Kingdom. Lieutenant General Sir Cedric Delves commanded an SAS squadron during the Falklands campaign and his book, 'Across an Angry Sea', is a chronicle of learning fast, fighting hard, and winning through. Helen Parr is a historian and author whose uncle died in the Falklands. Her book, 'Our Boys', brings to life the human experiences of the paratroopers who fought in the conflict, and examines the long aftermath of the campaign. Light refreshments will be provided on arrival.
