As a British Army Officer in the Corps of Royal Engineers Toby Woodbridge twice deployed to Afghanistan’s Helmand Province, and spent a total of eight months in the notorious District of Sangin.

Employed as mentor to the Afghan National Police during his last tour in the town Woodbridge spent over six months living, working and fighting alongside members of that much maligned but critically important force, gaining a rare insight into their world and way of life.

His experiences from those two tours provide the background for this unique perspective on the difficulties and dangers experienced by a soldier trying to survive as tutor to fighters on the front line of Afghanistan’s insurgency.
