The forces of the 3rd Reich surge into France. The Panzer Division’s speed takes the Allies by surprise, and French forces are soon defeated, while the British Expeditionary force is blocked off in the “Dunkirk Pocket,” from which they barely escape. In the face of a victorious Reich, the fate of the world will rest for a few months on the shoulders of a handful of men: the RAF pilots.
In 1982, conflict erupts between Great Britain and Argentina, putting important forces into play. Argentina decides to seize the Falkland Islands, which had been occupied by the United Kingdom since the beginning of the 19th century. On April 2, an island landing of Argentine forces succeeds, taking the government of Margaret Thatcher by surprise. Argentina asserts its sovereignty over the Islands. While hoping for a diplomatic solution, No. 10 Downing Street prepares a large-scale operation to regain control of the Falkland Islands. Along with the use of traditional combat techniques, these operations also provide an extraordinary test of modern electronic weaponry.
