Mike Brewer has been a motoring journalist for over 25 years, but it's his down to earth and easy approach that made him the natural choice as the presenter of Frontline Battle Machines.

Frontline Battle Machines follows his journey into uncharted territory as he gains unprecedented access to Camp Bastion - the strategic hub of the allied forces in Afghanistan in their war against the Taliban.

Not only does Mike experience the power of the machinery used by the modern British Army, but during a less than routine medical evacuation he himself confronts the enemy, and in doing so witnesses at first hand the dangerous reality of the war in Afghanistan.
