The One That Got Away: My SAS Mission Behind Iraqi Lines (Warriors) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The British Armys SAS—the Special Air Service—is recognized as one of the worlds premier special operations units. During the Gulf War, deep behind Iraqi lines, an SAS team was compromised. A fierce firefight ensued, and the eight men were forced to run for their lives. Only one, Chris Ryan, escaped capture—by walking nearly 180 miles through the desert for a week. The One That Got Away is his breathtaking story of extraordinary courage under fire, of narrow escapes, of highly trained soldiers struggling against the most adverse of conditions, and, above all, of one mans courageous refusal to lie down and die.
