In 2004 in the Iraq desert, British soldier, Brian Wood found himself on the receiving end of an order not given in battle in 25 years: FIX BAYONETS! In just a split second he digested that phrase, and began leading his men on a full-frontal assault against an entrenched enemy, charging into heavy oncoming fire. Outnumbered, he and his men engaged in a close-quarter battle, seizing the initiative and defeating the enemy force, saving numerous allied soldiers’ lives. For his courageous leadership in battle, Brian was awarded the Military Cross by Her Majesty The Queen II – one of Britain’s highest awards for gallantry in combat. But, his story doesn’t end there.

Hear how he survived one of the most daring assaults in military history, and the fallout from having his honor questioned years later, in this latest edition of HAZARD GROUND!
