Falkland Islands

  • Moshe Brawer


The object of the only direct war in this century between a European power (Great Britain) and a South American state (Argentina) was the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas to the Argentinians), a small group of islands northeast of the southern tip of South America, about 480 kilometers (300 miles) off the mainland. The group consists of some 200 islands and islets with a total area of 12,030 square kilometers (4,700 square miles).
