Argentina 2, Britain 0

Did you know that 200 years ago, the British army invaded Argentina not just once, but twice?

In fact this summer marks the first of two invasions of Buenos Aires in 1806 and 1807: military expeditions that took place within the framework of the Napoleonic Wars with France.

I’d never heard of it.  Probably because the British army were soundly beaten on each occasion by Argentinian militias.
