The true story of of the bloodiest battle of the Falklands conflict, the Battle of Mount Longdon, as recounted by 12 foot soldiers from the ranks - eight Argentinians and four Britons. It describes the appalling treatment the Argentinian conscripts suffered at the hands of their own generals; the emotions of soldiers meeting face-to-face ten years after they tried their hardest to kill one another; and the terror of battle as experienced by the ordinary soldier. The author, who also wrote "Excursion to Hell", joined the Parachute Regiment in 1978 at the age of 20. After service in Canada, Oman, Northern Ireland and the Falklands, he was assigned to training recruits. He left the army as a Lance Corporal in 1987.
