Falkland Islands
The Falkland Islands are located roughly 480 km northeast of the southern end of South America. In addition to the two main islands, East and West Falkland, respectively, there are hundreds of smaller islands that comprise the group, which has been the stage for several conflicts since the French first settled on East Falkland in 1764, and the British settled West Falkland a year later; the most recent battle was in 1982, the Falkland Islands War, in which the British repelled an Argentinian invasion.1
