A top secret mission to change the course of the Falklands War, the first book in the SBS Trilogy
In the war-torn, storm-swept South Atlantic, a small band of highly-trained SBS experts embarks on a vital secret mission: to sabotage Argentina's stock of deadly Exocet missiles. The course of the Falklands War depends on their success.
One man, Andy MacEwan, an Anglo-Argentine civilian recruited to the team as guide and interpreter, has more than the mission on his mind. His brother is a commander in the Argentine Navy Air Force and there is no love lost between them.
The dangers are unthinkable: the coastline is exposed and treacherous, the missile base is surrounded by vast tracts of open land, and they must complete their deadly work without ever being detected. Some say it's impossible… but this lethal band of elite warriors are used to upsetting the odds.Praise for Alexander Fullerton
