Flag of Trinidad and Tobago
The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is an archipelagic state in the southern Caribbean, lying northeast of Venezuela and south of Grenada in the Lesser Antilles.

Trinidad and Tobago was a Spanish colony from the times of Christopher Columbus to 1802, when it was ceded to Britain. The country obtained independence in 1962, becoming a republic in 1976.

Trinidad and Tobago in WorldwarEdit

Like many island nations, Trinidad and Tobago were spared direct invasion by the Race's Conquest Fleet in 1942, and so retained independence by default after the Peace of Cairo in 1944.[1]
