'"The Paras are in the shit," I was told. "Pinned down by Argie artillery and mortars, unable to move without being fired on by dug-in machine-guns. We're looking at a disaster." The bad news got worse - the ultimate confirmation that 2 Para were in terrible, terrible trouble. The command net crackled out the message "Sunray down", meaning that H Jones, 2 Para's commander, had been killed... It was our darkest hour. This was how we could lose the war. Then something incredible happened... Our land war was up and running. The enemy was broken. And all because of one man's extraordinary heroism... The overriding question about Jones's life is why, in his final moments, he acted with the bravery he did. Wilsey's book shows us that whatever we might think of Jones, he remained true to himself until the second he was killed. As Wilsey reveals, Jones had always done what he thought was right, and to hell with the consequences.'
