Publisher's Summary

When 3 Para began their assault under cover of darkness on Mount Longdon in June 1982, nobody knew what to expect. The three platoons of B Company each approached the mountain silently, treading carefully through a series of defensive minefields. But following an explosion, fighting quickly escalated with shocking speed and severity, resulting in some of the bloodiest close hand fighting, terrible injuries and shocking loss of life experienced by British troops since the Korean war. 

Recreating 3 Para's bloody Falklands battle from multiple angles, James O'Connell - who fought there and was seriously injured himself - has written a gut-wrenching 360-degree classic. 

Frustrated by highly inaccurate books about the battle, O'Connell decided to set the record straight. What he did next was extraordinary - he revisited the Falkland's five times with comrades and Argentine soldiers and literally walked through the battle with them, step-by-step, creating an unprecedented masterpiece of immersive military publishing. 

Combined with rare access to the Battalion's records and radio logs, the resulting book is the last word on Mount Longdon, and, voiced by a full cast of actors, might be the most harrowingly realistic description of modern warfare you will ever hear.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A true story told straight!.

I’ve read many accounts of 3 Paras battle for Mount Longdon in The Falklands in 1982 but this tells the story across all the angles. All Company’s and attached arms, “Tom” to CO, everyone has their perspective in the battle. The significant thing for me is the use of the Signallers logs. Times and chain of commands are all pulled together in this forensic account which irons out, once and for all the actual events which makes the already remarkable action even more outstanding and elevates those friends and colleagues that were involved to even greater admiration. “Everyman an Emperor”!.

A truly outstanding account of 3 PARA and the battle for Mount Longdon in The Falklands War, I later had the privilege to serve with these battle hardened paratroopers.
