Publisher's Summary

Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But can the SAS prevent British Task Force being destroyed by exocet missiles?

It is 1982, and a brutal, bloody war is being waged as British forces try to battle the Argentinians into surrendering the Falkland Islands. As the fighting continues, it becomes clear to British Task Force commanders that they will need to call upon the help of the legendary Special Air Service - the SAS!

Their mission, which must be shrouded in a veil of secrecy, is to infiltrate enemy territory by land and sea and from the air, performing tasks too dangerous for the average soldier.

Surviving hunger, freezing cold and constant danger, they must gather vital intelligence, engage in espionage, disrupt enemy communications and, when necessary, engage and kill the enemy. A tall enough order for an army; when it's just a small unit of men, this may prove to be a one-way mission....

Disappointed

Inaccurate a lot of the time and the dialogue of the soldiers made them sound like morons!
A potentially great story spoiled!

Fast paced and well told

Vividly told, this is the true story of SAS involvement in the Falklands War from beginning to end. It covers the 3 major events I knew about unprompted whilst dealing with the emotional feelings of the men involved and the ups and downs of their time on task. This is the best book of the series by some distance. Loved it !!
