About This Item

364pp 16 pages of color photographic inserts. No illustrations. Spine binding to front cover repaired and strengthened.

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.

Synopsis

Chris Ryan was born near Newcastle in 1961. He joined the SAS in 1984. During his ten years 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. For his last two years he was selecting and training potential recruits for the SAS.

We restore books where necessary and describe ONLY EXCEPTIONS to a perfect state. Faults in expensive books are described in huge detail.
