Reviews

The Islanders War is an award-winning documentary that tells the story of the Falklands Conflict in 1982 through the eyes of the people who lived through it. Viewers are taken right into the heart of the action as the heroic deeds of the islanders are brought into focus. They transmitted vital radio intelligence, took clandestine photographs of Argentine positions and carried ammunition, food and men to the front lines while often under shell and mortar fire. It is a story of bravery and defiance at great personal risk and their immense contributions to the British cause will never be forgotten. The second documentary in this 2-disc set examines how Argentina s leaders miscalculated Margaret Thatcher s resolve to retake the islands. It caused the downfall of General Leopoldo Galtieri and eventually led to the restoration of democracy in Argentina.

Through interviews with the residents of the Falkland Islands we learn about their contributions to the campaign. Film offers a unique perspective. Includes old familiar film footage and new unique film footage too. Film is well worth every penny.

this really is an excellent documentary which goes into detail of the effects the Argentine's had on the native population of the Falklands
some parts came as a complete shock to me and the use of mock execution is quite disturbing and the film gives you an insight into the suffering of peaceful people exposed to the cruelty of a desperate enemy once the came under attack from the British task force
many of the islanders were real heroes of the conflict

This is a great documentary, which shows the Falklands War from the perspective of the Islanders. In my opinion this should be shown to the minority of people who just think we should hand the islands to Argentina as it would give them food for thought. It shows the resilience and spirit of a people who wish to live their lives in peace and are proud to be British.

I've watched countless videos and documentaries on the falklands war but this one is different because you get a first hand view of what the islanders went through a very good watch

A good disc, excellent comments, is a good reminder that everyone on the islands fought the Argentinians in their own way
