Baghdad Operators

Ever wondered what members of the Special Forces did after they left the services? This story starts with five guys organising an undercover road trip across worn torn Iraq in the spring 2003. Discover how they used their unique military skills to create a successful security company with over 300 employees during the early days of the occupation. See how Iraq was torn apart from the inside from someone who was there and get an insight into what it took to rebuild a country ripped apart by war and insurgency.

Discover how their journey moved from the Basra oilfields, where they apply their skills to beat the bad guys and get more work, into Baghdad dangerous streets. Learn how they used their Close Protection skills to escort their clients around the country's electricity grid. Find out how the power stations became a target and what steps were taken to protect them from mortars, rockets and infiltrators. Learn how the insurgents upped up their game and turned their attentions on the security teams, using everything from snipers and rockets to car bombs and IEDs to try and kill them. Also see how the security teams played piggy in the middle between the American military and the Iraqi police and how they had to use their skills and wits to keep working. Even in Kurdistan, the safest part of the country, one wrong move could cost have cost lives.

Find out how Britain's ex-Special Forces helped Iraq's reconstruction and the part they had to pay along the way...
