A gripping study into the Falklands War and its aftermath through the eyes the paratroopers. Written by the niece of David Parr, a paratrooper killed in conflict, the story is a powerful reflection of the trauma that has followed the survivors and the families of those lost.
As well as a harrowing account of the history of the Parachute Regiment, the book also serves as a candid examination of the working class of 1970s and how their lives were changed as they found themselves parachuting on to unfamiliar land and fighting in terrifyingly close quarters. A brutally honest discussion about fear and grief that is hard to forget.
