In April 1980, six armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London, taking 26 people inside hostage. Over the next six days a tense standoff took place, all the while a group of highly trained soldiers from the SAS prepared for a raid, the likes of which the world had never seen before.
6 Days is a definitive inside account of a historic military operation, where for the first time ever the public witnessed the incredible bravery of the Special Air Service (SAS) in action.The gunmen demanded the release of Arab prisoners in the Khuzestan Province of Iran, as well as their own safe passage out of the UK. When the demands were refused, and when someone was murdered the SAS took action.
6 Days will be released in UK and Ireland from 4th August.
