Falkland Islanders were the first British people to come under enemy occupation since the Channel Islanders during the Second World War. This book tells how islanders' warnings were ignored in London, how their slim defences gave way to a massive invasion, and how they survived occupation.
While some established a cautiously pragmatic modus vivendi with the occupiers, some Islanders opted for active resistance, using banned radios to transmit intelligence and confuse the Argentines. Others joined advancing British troops, transporting ammunition and leading men to the battlefields. They often came under Argentine fire. Islanders' leaders and 'trouble makers' faced internal exile, and whole settlements were imprisoned, becoming virtual hostages. Those who remained in besieged Stanley found themselves in the same dangerous situation as their enemy, enduring British naval shelling, artillery attacks and bombing raids.
