On the 8th of June 1982, McNally sat in his Rapier missile battery watching helplessly as bombs rained down on the Sir Galahad troop ship and its crew of hundreds of soldiers, his system having failed. He left the army after the war and, even though he re-enlisted (volunteering for two tours of Northern Ireland), he was riddled by guilt and plagued by nightmares and flashbacks of that awful day. McNally later spearheaded a groundbreaking Post Traumatic Stress lawsuit against the government. 25 years on, Watching Men Burn is his story of the reality of warfare.
