Three Days in June
When 3 Para began their assault under cover of darkness on Mount Longdon in June 1982, nobody knew what to expect. The three platoons of B Company each approached the mountain silently, treading carefully through a series of defensive minefields. But following an explosion, fighting quickly escalated with shocking speed and severity, resulting in some of the bloodiest close hand fighting, terrible injuries, and shocking loss of life experienced by British troops since the Korean war. Recreating 3 Para’s bloody Falklands battle from multiple angles, James O’Connell – who fought there and was seriously injured himself – has written a gut-wrenching 360 degree classic. Frustrated by highly inaccurate books about the battle, O’Connell decided to set the record straight.
