This book tells the true story of an SAS patrol behind enemy lines in Iraq, the Gulf War.
Of the eight members of the SAS regiment who set off, only one escaped capture. This is his story. During the first night of the mission the SAS patrol was accidentally separated and Chris Ryan found himself completely unprepared for the vicious cold of the desert winter. Left on his own he set out towards the Syrian border, walking 200 miles without food or water through the most extreme conditions and in constant danger. This is a story of courage and the refusal to lie down and die.
