Seen through the eyes of Section Commander George Thomsen, this inspiring first-hand account, tells of the tension-packed lead up, and the heroic stand, by a tiny band of brothers on one of the most inhospitable islands on the planet South Georgia.

They fought alone besieged, isolated, and against an overwhelming invasion force and yet had the enemy reeling on the ropes.

This is the story of true British grit, sheer bloody-mindedness, professionalism and ingenuity.

The Royal Marines courageous action on that extraordinary day changed the balance of The South Atlantic War. This was a modern-day Rorkes Drift when world events literally took too few too far.

Twenty-five years after these events took place; this is George Thomsens true story, as told to Malcolm Angel.
