April 1982: The British task force sails for the South Atlantic. Among their number is 22-year-old Robert Lawrence, an officer in the elite regiment of Scots Guards. On the bleak hills of the Falkland Islands they fight and win a series of bloody battles. For many of the soldiers it is a violent initiation into active combat, but for Robert, wounded hours before the Argentine surrender, the real battle begins when he returns home.
