Thatcher and the Falklands war

Here are the slides from our first class. I’ll put these up every week.

The documentary on the 1983 war can be found here – it’s a couple of hours long but really worth watching.

Margeret Thatcher gives her account of the war in her autobiography, The Downing Street Years. There’s plenty of books about the war – this one published shortly afterwards is by Max Hastings, who played a bit part himself as a gung-ho journalist.

This is another interesting one by a British historian concentrating on the Argentine military story.
