The British Army's Special Air Service is one of the world's 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 or death, and he did it by walking nearly 180 miles through the desert for seven days and eight nights. This story features extraordinary courage under fire, narrow escapes, a battle against the most adverse physical conditions, and, above all, of one man's courageous refusal to lie down and die.

Industry Reviews

"A thrill-a-minute story of terror, hardship, heroism, bravery, and sheer guts." "Raw and brutal." "Chris Ryan is tough. More than just tough, he has a strength of spirit which has proved unbreakable." "Must rank with the great escape stories of modern military history." "You have personally made SAS history."
