Oliver Shewell Franks, Baron Franks OM GCMG KCB CBE PC DL (16 February 1905 – 15 October 1992) was an English civil servant and philosopher who has been described as 'one of the founders of the postwar world'. The Falklands War, also known as the Falklands Conflict, Falklands Crisis, Malvinas War, South Atlantic Conflict, and the Guerra del Atlántico Sur, was a ten-week war between Argentina and the United Kingdom over two British dependent territories in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands, and its territorial dependency, the South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.

Lord Franks was often called upon by the government of the day to chair important inquiries, and he is best known for his report in the aftermath of the Falklands War which ultimately exonerated the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her government from charges of having failed to heed warning signals of an Argentine invasion.

In 1983 the Franks Committee reported on the decisions taken in the run-up to the Falklands War. Senior civil servant Lord Franks chaired a committee of six Privy Counsellors, who sat in private. There had been much speculation about whether the Falklands conflict could have been prevented, if the government had acted differently. For some years Britain and Argentina had been discussing possible resolutions to the dispute over the Falkland Islands.

On 6th July 1982, Margaret Thatcher announced that the British government had decided to appoint a Committee of Privy Counsellors, under the chairmanship of Lord Franks, to review the way in which the responsibilities of the British government in relation to the Falkland Islands and their dependencies were discharged in the period leading up to the Argentine invasion of the Falkland Islands on 2nd April 1982. The report was also to take account of all such factors in previous years as were relevant to the government's actions during war. This book provides an account of the report which is broken down into four sections: an account of the dispute between the UK and Argentine from 1965 to 1978; an account of the events and the development of policy under the Thatcher government; an account of events from the landing of a party of Argentine scrap merchants on South Georgia in March 1982 and on the invasion in April 1982; and the judgements of the committee on the aforementioned events.
