‘The eyes of the world are now focused on the Falkland Islands. Others are watching anxiously to see whether brute force or the rule of law will triumph. Wherever naked aggression occurs it must be overcome. The cost now, however high, must be set against the cost we would one day have to pay if this principle went by default. That is why, through diplomatic, economic and, if necessary, through military means, we shall persevere until freedom and democracy are restored to the people of the Falkland Islands.’ – Margaret Thatcher, 14 April 1982.

"I have a copy of Mrs Thatcher's War. I wondered if it is possible to buy a replacement set of counters? I love playing the game so much they are starting to wear out!"

"In summary, the game is engaging, intelligently designed, exciting to play and solidly representative of historical realities. In the largely unimpressive history of strategic-level Falklands war games, Madison’s Mrs Thatcher’s War stands out as a shining exception. It comes as a thorough recommend to those interested in the conflict, and fans of challenging solitaire war gaming."

"Overall, thank you Ben Madison for a very satisfying game." - from a review by David F.

"Thanks...for the game - it arrived yesterday and I'm really enjoying it.  The use of the air sectors to simulate air combat in the early stages of the war is excellent.  Just got the troops on land and about to break out of San Carlos.  Thanks again!" - Stephen N. 

"The counters from White Dog are works of art." - Tom B.

"...a very good simulation"
