In Detail

In 1984, Chris Ryan joined 22nd SAS, the regular Regiment, and completed three tours which took him to many parts of the world on operations and exercises. During the "Bravo Two Zero" mission, the team were dropped behind the Iraqi enemy lines during the 1st Gulf War in 1991. Out of the initial eight SAS soldiers, three of the team were killed in action, and four were captured. Only Chris escaped. During his escape, Chris Ryan trekked over 200 miles in eight days on foot, in both the freezing cold and baking sun, and often in full view of enemy patrols. Since leaving the SAS, Chris was the co-devisor and military consultant for Ultimate Force, a military action series for ITV1 starring Ross Kemp. The six-part series followed the exploits of a crack SAS troop. Among other successful television programmes, the series Strike Back was based upon Chris?s novel of the same name. It received great acclaim, solidifying Chris?s success in both print and on screen.


If ever there was an example of winning against the odds, this is it. Hearing his survival experience is truly inspiring and boosts your own motivation.
