I note that the author progressed through the ranks of 3 Para., to be commissioned eventually. I must guess that this long familiarity with the regiment was his reason for referring to all ranks by their Christian names.
Not a book for the faint hearted.
It tells the story of a young soldier sent to the Falkland Islands to fight against the invading Argentine Forces in 1982. I tells his story from landing in the Falklands, the slog across the barren and wet tundra that makes up the majority of the Islands landscape and the final assault of Mount Longdon.
Its graphic, intense and contains a modicum of squaddie humour, which comes from Robs military background. I could relate to Archies upbringing in Leigh Park as i also come from the same area, I can also relate to the battle scenes and description of the Falklands, having served in the Islands and been to Tumbledown, Falkland Sound and Mount Longdon.
Although a small amount of artistic license has been used, Robs description of the assault is believable and absorbs you into the heat of the action.
All in all, and truthfully, i thoroughly enjoyed the book and await his next
