In 1982, in a Britain with three million unemployed, the revenue from North Sea oil was the country’s life-blood.

Well aware of this, the British government was taking strong measures - not only to curtail the rapaciousness of the multinational oil conglomerate, but also to protect the

North Sea oilfields from terrorist sabotage.

Despite this - or possibly because of it - the IRA embarked on a terrorist operation so daring that the British government suppressed all information about it and has even, to this day, refused to acknowledge that it ever happened.

In the middle of the North Sea, beyond the reach of the British government, out of sight of the media, the IRA sank one oil rig, hijacked another, and held the rest of the oilfields to ransom. Their plan of action was so ruthless and diabolically clever that it stunned the world’s top security agencies and rendered them helpless.

Only one group of men was deemed capable of dealing with this terrifying crisis on the high seas: the Royal Marine Special Boat Service - the legendary SBS! Marine A SBS: Terrorism on the North Sea tells the story of how, called in under a blanket of total secrecy, the SBS launched one of the most extraordinary assaults in the history of nautical warfare. Their objective was to defeat the terrorists and regain the oilfields – and to save Britain from a devastating economic collapse.
