In Detail

In the Gulf War, Andy commanded the famous Bravo Two Zero patrol; an eight man patrol tasked with destroying underground communication links between Baghdad and north-west Iraq and with finding and destroying mobile Scud missile launchers. The patrol infiltrated Iraq in 1991, but was soon compromised. A fierce fire fight with Iraqi troops ensued and the patrol was forced to escape and evade on foot to Syria. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, he was the British Armys most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in 1993. Andy has written regularly for various newspapers and outside his writing career, he was technical weapons adviser and trainer on the hit Michael Mann film Heat and spent five months in Hollywood. He has written regularly for The Sunday Times, The Times, Mail on Sunday, The Sun and The Daily Mirror.


An excellent speaker, Andy is in great demand by audiences eager to hear the inside story to his amazing experiences with the SAS. Trained as a specialist in counter terrorism, prime target elimination, demolitions, weapons and tactics, covert surveillance and information gathering in hostile environments, and VIP protection, Andy has developed and runs a specialist training course for news crews, journalists and members of non-governmental organisations working in hostile environments (including war zones). The course is currently the only one of its kind in the world.
