Too Few Too Far : The True Story of a Royal Marine Commando Paperback


British Commando George Thomsen's action-filled account of combat during the Falklands War.

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 Rorke's Drift when world events literally took too few too far.

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