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. Over the next six weeks of fighting, the action never let up. Facing extreme weather and a determined enemy, Splash and the men of D Squadron fought in one extraordinary contact after another.And when their Sea King helicopter crashed in the freezing South Atlantic, Splash was one of just seven survivors. Evacuated to a hospital ship, Splash defied orders and a suspected broken neck to re-join his unit until the fight was won.An unputdownable, edge-of-the-seat insight into still classified Special Forces operations publishing near the anniversary of the Fortuna Glacier rescue, SAS- Sea King Down will take its place alongside classics like Bravo Two Zero as military adventure writing of the highest order.
