SAS: Sea King Down




The unputdownable, edge-of-the-seat insight into still classified Special Forces operations in the Falklands War.

After passing the world's toughest Special Forces selection and joining D Squadron, 22 SAS, Mark 'Splash' Aston thought the hard part was over.

Then in April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands.

Joining Britain's campaign, Splash and D Squadron fought in one extraordinary contact after another.

When tragedy struck their Sea King helicopter in the freezing South Atlantic, Splash was one of just nine survivors, and defied orders and a suspected broken neck to re-join his unit in combat.

An unputdownable insight into still classified Special Forces operations, SAS: Sea King Down is military adventure writing of the highest order.
