Monty Halls - Commando

The Inside Story of Britain's Royal Marines

Accompanying a 4-part BBC series, a character-led, all-access account of the work of the modern Royal Marine Commandos by celebrated former Marine Monty Halls.

The Royal Marine Commandos have become a byword for elite raiding skills and cutting-edge military operations. They are globally renowned and yet widely misunderstood. With unique insight and authority, Commando captures the essence and heart of this revered military unit then and now, exploring their role patrolling the high seas and policing coastlines around the globe, revealing their rich history and what it means to win and wear the legendary green beret.

Former Royal Marine Monty Halls tells the real stories of extraordinary individuals through a period of historic global unrest: from high-profile drug busts at sea, to the Mountain Leaders iconic raids in the Falklands; from life-affirming recovery from injury, to ultra-events raising vast sums to support their brethren. With full and exclusive access to every level of the organisation, Monty Halls provides an enthralling behind-the-scenes look at the lives of the ‘Corps Family’, from the highest echelons right through to fresh-faced recruits and Royal Marine veterans.

Accompanying a major BBC series, Commando is an unforgettable glimpse into a rarefied world of danger, drama, and valour

Feedback From 2016 Festival

The event I attended - Brian Patten - was excellent. I thought the format made for a very interesting session: better than just a talk.

My stand out event would have to be Prof Tony Redmond with Kate Adie - could have listened for another hour.

We'd like to say 'thank you' to everyone involved. We were very impressed with the arrangements, the quality of the speakers and the refreshments provided at the hall. We look forward to next year.
