This introduction to the special issue of the Journal of War and Culture Studies sets out the scope of the collection of articles which reflect in different ways on conflict and culture on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Falklands/Malvinas War. The special issue highlights the diversity of practices of cultural production in response to the war and its legacy. The articles examine: how the war has been remembered in Britain since 1982, materials which inform diplomatic practices through which the war is remembered in Argentina and the Falkland Islands, memories of the Malvinas War from the perspective of Argentine military veterans imprisoned for crimes against humanity, UK military veteran practices of return and/or pilgrimage to the islands, and the use of hyper-realistic painting by an Argentine pilot-turned-artist in reproducing and reconstructing some of the war's events.
