Diego Garcia is an island of the British Indian Ocean Territory, an overseas territory of the United Kingdom

Diego Garcia is an island of the British Indian Ocean Territory, an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. It is a militarised atoll just south of the equator in the central Indian Ocean, and the largest of 60 small islands comprising the Chagos Archipelago. It was first discovered by Europeans and named by the Portuguese, settled by the French in the 1790s and transferred to British rule after the Napoleonic Wars.

Diego Garcia is located in the Indian Ocean's Chagos Archipelago, more than 1,000 miles from the nearest continent.

Diego Garcia is about the Navy's need for secure communications in the Indian Ocean area, and who and how this need was fulfilled. The establishment of a classified radio station on the island of Diego Garcia in the Chagos Archipelago precipitated considerable national and international debate during the Cold War. How Diego Garcia became the linchpin of United States strategy in the Indian Ocean and Southwest Asia illustrates the complexities and difficulties that a democracy faces whenever it addresses national security issues. During the early 1970's, as British presence East of Suez was being withdrawn, India led an effort to establish a Zone of Peace, and the dependence on Middle East oil required the United States to establish an Indian Ocean presence effectively and unobtrusively. Diego Garcia fills in a 25 year gap in the history of this base, and those who made it possible.
