This year, five of the UK and USA's finest young officers have put their careers on the line to take part. The high flyers risk all to win the right to command a nuclear submarine, because Perisher is do or die for a candidate's naval career.

For four weeks they face 18-hour-daya of tests, drills and full-force warfare as thirty NATO ships, dozens of helicopters, fixed wing aircraft, and special operations troops line up to fight both with and against them.
