"During the first night of a mission during the first Gulf war in 1991 the SAS patrol, Bravo Two Zero, was accidentally separated and Chris Ryan found himself with only two companions, completely unprepared for the vicious cold or the desert winter. One of his friends disappeared in a blizzard and the other left in search of food - never to return. 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. 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 - Chris Ryan. This is his story . . ."
