How did it end?
The final prize for the British troops was Port Stanley.

Despite this British troops surrounded Port Stanley and the Argentineans surrendered on 14 June.

The British took more than 10,000 prisoners of war.

More than 900 people died during the fighting:

  • 655 Argentines
  • 255 British troops
  • 3 Falkland islanders.
