Dick Hutchings won the Distinguished Flying Cross for his heroic actions during the Falklands War – but for a quarter of a century he has remained silent about his involvement in the conflict. Now, in this riveting book, he reveals for the first time the story of his work as a special forces pilot and, in particular, what went wrong both in the air and on the ground during Operation Mikado – the ill-fated bid to land SAS soldiers in Argentina so they could carry out covert operations. The sensitive nature of his experiences provide the reader with some fascinating insights into the conduct of operations.

I could not put this down; it is rare for a military history book to be such an exciting read. After 30 years of Top Secret embargoes, it is fascinating to learn from an expert Falklands veteran the real story of the clandestine special operations on the Argentine mainland during the Falklands War.

A fascinating perspective on the war from a key participant and a valuable insight into the mind of a field commander.
