Hard–edged, realisitc and powerful Spearhead has been favourably compared to Soldier Soldier. Critically recognised for its portrayal of life 'from the soldier's point of view'. An unflinching depiction of life in the British Army during the 1970's. A platoon of The Royal Wessex Rangers are in the command of NCO 'Jacko' Jackson (Billington ) a role usually reserved for officers. Against the backdrop of a tour of duty to Northern Ireland, internal issues call into question his right and ability to command.
This leaves Jackson having to prove himself to his men in the field and his commanding officer.
