The story of Diego Garcia is shocking, almost incredible. A British colony lying in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Diego Garcia is an island phenomenon of natural beauty, and one of peace. All this began to end when an American rear-admiral stepped ashore in 1961. At the behest of the American government the British Foreign Office then set into action a plan to secretly and brutally relocate the island inhabitants, making way for what is today America’s largest offshore military base.
