Grenada Introduction

Grenada is an independent country in the Caribbean Sea. It lies about 140 kilometres north of Trinidad. The island of Grenada makes up most of the country.

It is the southernmost of the Windward Islands, a chain forming part of the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies

The nation of Grenada also includes several tiny islands near the main island. In addition, it includes Carriacou--which lies about 27 kilometres northeast of the main island--and several other small islands of the Grenadine chain, including Petit Martinique

A Short Background

One of the smallest independent countries in the western hemisphere, Grenada was seized by a Marxist military council on 19 October 1983. Six days later the island was invaded by US forces and those of six other Caribbean nations, which quickly captured the ringleaders and their hundreds of Cuban advisers. Free elections were reinstituted the following year.
