Thatcher introduced a series of economic policies intended to reverse high unemployment and Britain's struggles in the wake of the Winter of Discontent and an ongoing recession. Thatcher's popularity in her first years in office waned amid recession and increasing unemployment, until victory in the Falklands War and the recovering economy brought a resurgence of support, resulting in her decisive re-election. She survived an assassination attempt in the Brighton hotel bombing.
