In early summer 1982--winter in the South Atlantic--Argentina's military junta invades the Falklands.

Within days, a Royal Navy Task Force is assembled and dispatched.

This is the story of D Squadron, 22 SAS, commanded by Cedric Delves. The relentless tempo of events defies belief. Raging seas, inhospitable glaciers, hurricane-force winds, helicopter crashes, raids behind enemy lines--the Squadron prevailed against them all, but the cost was high.

Holding fast to their humanity, D Squadron's fighters were there at the start and end of the Falklands War.

Theirs was the first Union Jack raised over Government House in Stanley. 'Across an Angry Sea' is a chronicle of daring, skill and steadfastness among a tight-knit band of brothers; of learning fast, fighting hard, and winning through.
