This is about Hugh McManners' as a writer and author. After 18 years in the British Army, including several tours in the Ministry of Defence and the Staff College Camberley, Hugh left for a career as an author. This was the subject of Hugh's first book, the best selling "Falklands Commando", in which FO1 operate on their own 20 kilometres behind enemy lines, and as members of the SBS, and with the SAS. Hugh has now written some 17 books on a wide variety of military-related subjects. Hugh also had a television career - producing documentaries, then as a presenter. He still does the occasional telly pundit stint, usually expounding on terrorism and military stuff.
