Test your wits at key points in the story to see if you’d survive Operation Lavivrus, and make it home alive. Lofty has written optional questions throughout the story to give you the opportunity to test yourself against the best.
The country is on alert – Britain is at war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands, and SAS soldiers Peter and Tony find themselves in a military research centre being briefed in the use of a top-secret device. That’s the easy part.
Part of an 8-man team, they parachute into Argentina – but the drop-off goes wrong. Tony and Peter, separated from the others, are forced to use every trick they know to evade a determined and intelligent Argentinean officer throwing men and resources at the problem of finding the operatives.
What follows is a masterclass in escape and evasion in one of the world’s toughest climates – but will they make it out alive?
Lofty channels his considerable survival know-how and personal experience with the SAS into an action-packed story that will allow readers to experience the life of an SAS officer – from military bureaucracy, to intense interpersonal bonds, to masterfully described life or death survival scenarios.
Lofty has created a thrilling story that even the most experienced survivalists will be sure to be moved by—and pick up tips from.
