About the Book

After passing the world’s toughest Special Forces selection and joining D Squadron, 22 SAS in 1979, Mark ‘Splash’ Aston thought the hard part was over.
Then on April 2 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands.
Days later D Squadron joined the cutting edge of Britain’s campaign to retake the islands.
Publishing near the anniversary of the Fortuna Glacier rescue – and the largest loss of life in the SAS since WWII. This is the first time that anyone on board the helicopter has ever been available for interview. And the first time that any SAS trooper who fought in the Falklands War has ever told their story.
