Bringing history to life
I have had a life-long interest in military history, my father being a WW2 veteran and both my grandfathers serving in WW1. I read history at University and went on to do a Masters. I began working as a Battlefield Guide in 1987 and joined Leger for their first ever battlefield tour in April 1997.
When not working for Leger, I work as a Military Historian in television; in the past few years I have worked on numerous documentaries for BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5 relating to WW1 and WW2 including ‘Dig WW2’ with Dan Snow and ‘WW1 Tunnels of Death’.
I’m also the author of a number of books on WW1 and WW2 including the best-selling Walking The Somme, Great War Lives and Walking D-Day.
