Summary:
Called to action on 2 April 1982, the men of 45 Commando Royal Marines assembled from around the world to sail 8000 miles to recover the Falkland Islands from Argentine invasion. Lacking helicopters and short of food, they 'yomped' in appalling weather carrying overloaded rucksacks, across the roughest terrain. This is their story.
