The article discusses the impact of the Falkland Islands conflict between Great Britain and Argentina on Great Britain. A great majority of people in Great Britain supported the government's decision to dispatch fleet to Falkland Islands. During the conflict, civilian seamen and dockyard workers worked around the clock and volunteered unanimously to participate in the conflict. Some political leaders and labor unions condemned the conflict. After the conflict, there is a need for the British Navy to revise its strategy.
