About Macer Gifford
Harry Rowe, popularly known as Macer Gifford, is a media personality, author, British former currency trader, volunteer fighter, and combat medic who, between mid-2015 and 2017, fought alongside the Kurdish YPG militia against the Islamic State terror group and, as of 2022, is a reconnaissance infantryman, and medic for the Ukrainian Foreign Legion in Ukraine.
A long-time human rights activist, Gifford has previously conducted expeditions into the Congolese rainforest, campaigned against Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe, and worked with the British Council on the Horn of Africa. Taking his nome-de-Guerre from jockey Macer Gifford, a friend of his father and the brother of four-time British champion jockey Josh Gifford, Macer arrived on the ground in Ukraine 10 days before the war began. Giffords commitment to hunaminatarian work in combat zones sets him apart from many of his fellow volunteer comrades. For example, the CMU (or Combat Medical Unit) he established in Syria with the Kurds continues to function to this day, and in the opening stages of the conflict in Ukraine (under the title Operation Golden Hour,) Gifford established a similar program in the region, to train both domestic and international volunteers. Seeking to get involved in more direct action, Gifford officially joined the Ukrainian Army and was assigned to the 131st Battalion and the International Cossacks Expeditionary force, a forward operating reconnaissance unit tasked with discovering and engaging Russian forces and the capture of intelligence material. Since then, the unit has had several notable successes, including the capture and detainment of several Russian officers on the battlefield and the liberation of Kherson, for which the Supreme Commander of the Ukrainian Army awarded Gifford a medal.
Macer has been a regular guest on BBC, Channel 4, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ITV, Sky News, LBC, and many others, including speaking engagements at the University of London and several podcasts, including Chris Hayes, the Guardian, and Unilad. The follow-up to his book “Fighting Evil” with a foreword from former SAS Officer Andy McNab, is expected in late 2023. He is currently studying for a Master’s degree in Security, Peace-building, and Diplomacy at Loughborough University, London.
