The One That Got Away

By Ryan, Chris




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.

The One That Got Away

Chris Ryan

London, England: Ted Smart, 1995. The SAS mission conducted behind Iraqi lines is one of the most famous 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. Late in the evening of 24 January 1991 the patrol was compromised deep behind enemy lines in Iraq. A fierce fire-fight left the eight men miraculously unscathed, but they were forced to run for their lives. Their aim was to reach the Syrian border, 120 kilometres to the north-west, but during the first night the partol accidentally broke into two groups, five and three. Chris Ryan found himself left with two companions. Nothing had prepared them for the vicious cold of the desert winter, and they began to suffer from hypothermia. During the night one of the men was to disappear in a blinding blizzard. Then the next day a goat-herd walked on top of the two survivors. Chris's remaining partner, thinking the Arab friendly, went off with him in search of food, and never returned. Left on his own, Chris Ryan beat off another Iraqi attack and set out alone. His greatest adventures were only just beginning....The One That Got Away is a breathtaking story of extraordinary courage under fire, of hairbreadth escapes, of the best trained soldiers in the world fighting against the most adverse conditions, and, above all, of one man's courageous refusal to lie down and die. Illustrated.. 1st Ted Smart Edition. Cloth. Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardback.
