Chris was part of the SAS eight-man team chosen for the Bravo Two Zero mission.  The men were dropped behind Iraqi enemy lines during the Gulf War in 1991. Three of the team were killed in action and four were captured.  Only Chris escaped.

He trekked across the desert for eight days, often in full view of enemy patrols. This harrowing but heroic experience was recounted later in his book THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY which became an immediate best seller in 1995.  Chris was awarded the Military Medal for his dramatic escape from Iraq. He subsequently left the SAS in 1994.

Chris Ryan is the author of a number of best sellers including 'the Increment', 'Greed', Ultimate Weapon, 'The Hit List', 'Tenth Man Down', 'Flash Flood: Code Red', 'The One that Got Away' and the ‘Alpha Force S’ series   

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.  His three-part series HUNTING CHRIS RYAN was shown on BBC1 to huge acclaim and was followed by BRITAIN’S TOUGHEST FAMILIES  (again for BBC1).

Chris was also the military consultant to Codemasters’ stealth-based first-person computer game - IGI 2: Covert Strike.

He is a successful public speaker, much in demand for talks on leadership and team-building.
