The Duke of Wellington said of Waterloo, that it was 'the nearest-run thing you ever saw in your life'. The same could be said of the Falkland's Campaign in 1982. A campaign fought at a distance of over 8000 miles, apparently hopelessly outnumbered in the air (50% losses were anticipated in the first week) and on the ground and all from a completely self contained, but isolated naval battle group.
On June 14th, 74 days after the surprise invasion, the Union Flag flew once more over Port Stanley. While the territory was won on the ground, it couldn't have been achieved without the Sea Harriers dominating the airspace and the support of helicopters working tirelessly carrying personnel and munitions and fighting as gunships.
