British air defences have been knocked out in a sneak attack and once again Argentine forces are being secretly readied for an assault on the Islands. A team from the crack SAS Mountain Troop is inserted by submarine. But has the mission been compromised from the start?

And can they escape in time to destroy the enemy bombers and prevent all-out war?
