TOO FEW, TOO FAR - PART II

The Falklands War of 1982 was one of the defining conflicts of the decade. The United Kingdom fought a war practically on its own thousands of miles from home. However, the conflict spread wider – and included the island of South Georgia, where Royal Marine Section Commander George Thomsen would become a legend. Part II continues with the bloody battle.

TOO FEW, TOO FAR

The Falklands War of 1982 was one of the defining conflicts of the decade. The United Kingdom fought a war practically on its own thousands of miles from home. However, the conflict spread wider – and included the island of South Georgia, a small island several hundred kilometers east of the Falklands, where Royal Marine Section Commander George Thomsen would become a legend. Twenty-two Royal Marines engaged an overwhelming Argentinean invasion force.
