After passing the world’s toughest Special Forces selection to get into D Squadron, 22 SAS, in 1979, Mark ‘Splash’ Aston thought he’d missed out on all the action. Too late to fight with the SAS in a decade long secret war in Oman, when terrorists then seized the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980 Splash missed out again when responsibility for the counter-terror role was passed to their comrades in B Squadron just weeks earlier. Then on April 2nd 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands. Days later D Squadron were on their way south as the cutting edge of Britain’s campaign to retake the islands. And over the next six weeks of fighting, as one extraordinary episode followed another, the action never let up. This is an unputdownable, edge-of-the-seat insight into still classified Special Forces operations during the Falklands War.
