GMALL Presents: The Falklands Debacle: A Forty-Year Retrospective
June 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm$18
MANCHESTER, Vt. – Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is delighted to welcome back Dr. Mark Szuchman to talk about the Falklands War on its 40th anniversary. Sovereignty disputes over territories in the South Atlantic date back centuries. They have been the source of diplomatic protests and threats, daring military incursions and forced evictions. After brewing for over two centuries, the case regarding competing sovereignty claims between Argentina and Great Britain over the Falklands/Malvinas and adjacent islands finally erupted in outright war with significant losses of men and ships on both sides. This talk will explore the history of the dispute and the ultimate war. This talk will be available as an in-person event as well as an online presentation via Zoom. Pre-registration is required.
