Synopsis

WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU'VE HAD BOTH LEGS AND AN ARM BLOWN OFF BY A TALIBAN IED? IF YOU'RE ANDY REID, YOU GET ON WITH IT…In October 2009, Corporal Andy Reid was blown up by a Taliban improvised explosive device while on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Injured so badly that it was thought he would not survive, he defied the odds to the extent that, within a month, he was able to meet up with the members of his patrol again. What he has achieved since then is little short of unbelievable.Standing Tall tells two stories. One is of Corporal Andy Reid, an infantry-section commander with Burma Company, 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment. The other tells of Andy Reid, triple-amputee skydiver, cyclist, charity fundraiser, husband and father. Together, they tell a tale of astounding courage; not just the courage to face the enemy under fire, day after day, in often appalling conditions, but also what Napoleon called 'three-o'clock-in-the-morning courage', the ability to respond to disaster and to overcome the inner demons that accompany it. Above all, this is the incredible story of a truly inspirational man.'BLOODY MINDED COURAGE, AWESOME LOVE AND A STORY THAT WILL MOVE YOU TO TEARS' - Daily Mail'HERO SOLDIER' - The Sun
