SAS: Sea King Down Summary

SAS: Sea King Down by Mark Aston

The thrilling, edge-of-your-seat true story of one soldier's Special Forces operations in the Falklands War

'BRILLIANT. A ROLLERCOASTER OF BLISTERING ACTION, SURVIVAL AND BEHIND-THE-LINES DARING' DAMIEN LEWIS
________

THE BIGGEST SINGLE LOSS OF LIFE FOR THE SAS SINCE WORLD WAR TWO . . .

1982, the British task force sails to liberate the Falkland Islands. Aboard: SAS D Squadron, determined to make their mark.

No one more so than Mark 'Splash' Aston.

But they have barely seen action when their Sea King helicopter crashes in freezing South Atlantic waters, killing 22 of Mark's comrades.

The last out of the sinking wreck, he suffers a broken neck. But defying medical evacuation orders, Mark sneaks off ship, re-joins his SAS comrades to land on a mountain near Port Stanley - to defend it against days of attacks by Argentine special forces . . .

SAS Sea King Down is a pulse-pounding account of D-Squadron's tragic loss and subsequent heroic stand in one of the most hostile places on Earth.

A story told by a man who barely survived to tell it.
