Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But will the SAS be able to outfox the IRA as they prepare a deadly reprisal? May 1987: a successful SAS ambush results in the deaths of eight IRA terrorists in Loughgall. Knowing that retaliation is certain and that Gibraltar has been selected by the IRA as a 'soft' target associated with British imperialism, British intelligence goes on the alert.

Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But can the SAS assault team rescue the hostages from the terrorist-held Iranian embassy? Thirtieth April 1980: six well-armed terrorists seize the Iranian embassy in London. Nineteen Iranian nationals and four British citizens are captured. Subsequent negotiations see some hostages released, but when, on the fifth day of the siege, one of the hostages is shot dead, his body dumped outside, the time for negotiation is over.

As a huge fan of the SAS and the embassy siege this was great, even having watched documentarys on the embassy siege in particular. It brings a new level of detail to the operation.
