England - Conflict - Modern


During modern times England has been involved in a number of significant conflicts and military operations around the world. One of the most notable conflicts during this period was the Falklands War in 1982, in which England fought against Argentina over control of the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic. The period also saw England involved in the Gulf War in 1991, as part of an international coalition led by the United States to drive Iraqi forces out of Kuwait. In more recent years, England has been involved in the War in Afghanistan (2001-2021) and the Iraq War (2003-2011), as part of the United States-led coalition. England has also been involved in various peacekeeping missions around the world, as well as anti-piracy operations in the waters off Somalia. Overall, the period from the 1970s to the present day has been marked by ongoing military conflict and operations for England, as the country has continued to play a significant role in global military affairs.
