Product description

The SAS mission conducted behind Iraqi lines is one of the most talked about stories of courage and survival in modern warfare. Of the eight members of the SAS regiment who set off, only one escaped capture. This is his story. Here Chris Ryan has also written an introduction detailing the aftermath of his extraordinary experience; how the former members of the patrol have fallen out and revealing documentary evidence that settles once and for all what really happened on that fateful mission. This edition also includes photographs censored at the time of the original publication. One of the most amazing and exciting true-life stories ever written, it started Chris Ryan on the path to being one of Britains most popular thriller writers.

Author information

Chris Ryan was born in 1961 in a village near Newcastle. In 1984 he joined the SAS. During his ten years in the Regiment , he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also Sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team. During the Gulf War, Chris was the only member of an eight-man team to escape from Iraq, of which three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal. During Ryan's last two years in the Regiment he selected and trained potential SAS recruits, he left the SAS in 1994 and is now the author of many bestselling thrillers for adults, as well as the Alpha Force and Code Red series for younger readers. His work in security takes him around the world. He has also appeared in a number of TV programmes, including Hunting Chris Ryan, Pushed to the Limit (Toughest Families) and Terror Alert (Sky TV, 2004).
