The Falkland Islands Conflict 1982 Information on ships, aircraft, major weapon systems and people that participated in the war. Also includes QuickTime videos.

From the site:

On the 5th April 1982, a large British task force set out on a 7500 mile journey to liberate a group of tiny windswept islands in the South Atlantic. On 1st May began the biggest naval action to take place since the Second World War - more than 1000 men lost their lives.

These pages are not only a resource of information (contributed to by people from all round the world, some of whom were actually involved) but also a tribute to those who served in the forces of both sides during the conflict.
