ABSTRACT
The article considers how the geographical location of the Falkland Islands creates a disadvantage for the British Navy heading to the South Atlantic to confront the Argentine military. According to the author, the British have no supply base which could spell the difference between success and failure. The author recommends that the U.S. studies maps and prepare a possible rescue mission for the British.
