This book traces the interaction of war and diplomacy and analyses why the Falklands conflict of 1982 engaged the British and Argentine people in a deeply personal way. It also examines the interpretation of the war in Britain, revealing how the war - a successful one - was seen by its critics as an example of 'Thatcher's Britain'. This 'small war' exemplified what one historian calls 'the myriad faces of war' and had - and has - resonances larger than its size.
