Mike has written four books, as of July 2020 with others in process. They tell the stories of the cemeteries of the Western Front, accessing the Front in three sections, Ypres, the Somme, and the battlefields between Ypres and the Somme. Importantly, the books focus on the stories of the men buried or commemorated in each burial site. He has also written one providing basic information about the Army Corps of WW1.

Andy taught history for 40 years. In 1981 he followed his great uncle to the Ypres Salient and has been studying the Great War ever since. He took his first group of students to the battlefields in 1982 before forming Eye Witness Tours in 1998 and now takes regular tours to the battlefields of WW1 & WW2. He is an Accredited Member of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides with Badge Number 111. He is widely read on all aspects of conflict and uses his extensive knowledge, numerous anecdotes and passion of the subject to educate and entertain in equal measure. Sadly, Andy left this world in May 2022. He is certainly now teaching and guiding in a better place. We miss him tremedously.
