A top secret mission to change the course of the Falklands War, the first book in the SBS Trilogy In the war-torn, storm-swept South Atlantic, a small band of highly-trained SBS experts embarks on a vital secret mission: to sabotage Argentina's stock of deadly Exocet missiles. The course of the Falklands War depends on their success. One man, Andy MacEwan, an Anglo-Argentine civilian recruited to the team as guide and interpreter, has more than the mission on his mind. His brother is a commander in the Argentine Navy Air Force and there is no love lost between them. The dangers are unthinkable: the coastline is exposed and treacherous, the missile base is surrounded by vast tracts of open land, and they must complete their deadly work without ever being detected. Some say it's impossible... but this lethal band of elite warriors are used to upsetting the odds.

This book tells the story of a small group of Australian sailors who served with distinction in a very difficult and unpopular war. They were the hardest-fought Australian aviation unit to serve in the Vietnam War and suffered a much higher casualty rate than the RAAF or Australian Army aviation units. The sheer intensity and protracted nature of their combat service is not understood or recognised by the Australian community or even by the Australian Defence Force. Every person who served in the RANHFV was a hero. Nearly all the maintenance and support staff voluntarily flew on operations as door gunners, sharing the hazards of action with their aircrew colleagues. On the ground the Australians were subject to rocket and mortar attacks which caused destruction and death. Despite these dangerous living and working conditions the Australians played a central role in making the 135th Assault Helicopter Company the best all-round helicopter company in Vietnam.

Suffering from memories of Jutland, Dollimore makes an error in judgment that results in the loss of fellow sailors. He is discreetly sent to serve out of the way on the China Station. As the Second World War about to break out, Dollimore is looking for vindication and serving in China is not going to do it.Some at the Admiralty are not convinced he can serve, but he is given the benefit of the doubt and command of HMS Burscombe, one of the most powerful cruisers in the Home Fleet. After all, he was at Jutland. For over two hundred years the Clark family has been producing successful officers for the Royal Navy. Rear-Admiral Harper Clark is well respected at work but his family life is another matter. His youngest son David has no interest in serving but Harper will not stand for that, not with war coming.

Thinking that love is greater than the barriers of class, they make their feelings known, opening up a past history of hate between the families. When David's sister, Patricia, is dealt a serious blow by the fortunes of war, she adds fuel to the fire by claiming David is not a Clark at all, but the product of their mother's affairs. It is time for him to face his father and get answers, but what is the Old Man's true agenda?Meanwhile, the war machine gears up. Home Fleet exercises are being run and an economic blockade of Germany is planned as the winds of war whirl.

The trap is laid. Now, Nick Everard must wait for the U-boats to arrive... Autumn 1942. Sir Nicholas Everard, Captain of the HMS Harbinger, has a convoy to escort: big and slow, with just one destroyer, two corvettes and a few trawlers to protect it. This will not be an easy mission. Meanwhile, U-boat pack commander Max Looff can hardly believe his luck. His nerve is going and he knows it: but now he has a one-in-a-million chance to annihilate an entire convoy... Little does Looff know, however, that Everard and his ships are bait: designed to distract the Germans from the real ‘Torch’ invasion forces. The game is on. For readers of Alexander Kent, Julian Stockwin and C S Forester, this is a thrilling tale of gallantry and determination in the face of enormous danger.

If he fails, his father Nick Everard, escort commander for Arctic convoy PQ19, is in trouble: none of his ships can stand up to Tirpitz’s broadsides. As The Gatecrashers draws to its thunderous climax, father and son face their final and most searching test...
