The One That Got Away - Junior edition




The couragous, heroic, real-life personal account of Chris Ryan's most famous mission, The One That Got Away, is reworked for a new generation.Some authors just write about it. Chris Ryan has been there, done it and lived to tell the tale.

The Bravo Two Zero mission is one of the most famous stories of courage and survival. Of the eight SAS members involved, only one escaped capture. This is his story . . .

During the first night of a mission during the Gulf war in 1991 an SAS patrol was accidentally separated and Chris Ryan found himself completely unprepared for the vicious cold or the desert winter. He had only two companions. One of them disappeared in a blizzard and the other left in search of food - never to return. But Chris Ryan’s greatest adventure was only just beginning . . . Left on his own; he beat off an Iraqi attack and set out, walking 200 miles without food or water through the most extreme conditions and with his life constantly in danger.
