Chris Ryan

Chris Ryan, fd SAS soldat, var med i samma grupp som Andy McNab under Gulfkriget I.

Chris Ryans kollega Andy McNab skrev 1993 bestsellern "Bravo Two Zero" / "Bravo Två Noll" som handlar om en SAS grupp bakom fiendens linjer i IRAK med uppdrag att förstöra kommunikationsnätet för SCUD-roborna.Chris som var med i samma grupp skrev då även sin version av historien i boken "The One That Got Away" / "Den ende som kom undan". Chris hade till skillnad mot de övriga gruppmedlemmarna i "Bravo Två Noll" som enda person lyckats ta sig till den syriska gränsen. Hans väg till gränsen var dock inte enkel eller smärtfri och det är frågan om den inte var värre än att bli torterad i det irakiska fängelset likt de övriga överlevande gruppmedlemmarna.

"Den ende som kom undan" sålde likt "Bravo Två noll" mycket bra. Senare började Chris även skriva romaner, något som då även Andy McNab började med. Bägge författarna har nu många välsäljande böcker bakom sig.

Personligen tycker jag att Chris Ryans böcker är aningen bättre än Andy McNabs, men båda killarnas böcker är mycket intressanta och det finns alltid små praktiska tips/metoder man kan dra nytta av i fält eller i det civila av dessa MYCKET kunniga killar. Även om romanernas berättelser är påhittade så kan jag inte tänka mig annat än att det ligger en viss del sanning i dem. När man kommer till ämnen/metoder man själv kan en del om så stämmer det mesta väldigt väl överens och det bevisar realismen böckerna. Dock är själva händelseförloppen tillspetsade för att göra det hela mer spännande och roligt att läsa.

The One That Got Away
NON FICTION

The One That Got Away:
My SAS Mission Behind Iraqi Lines

Författare: Chris Ryan
Språk: engelska
Utgivningsår: 1993
Beskrivning: The SAS mission conducted behind Iraqi lines is one of the most famous stories of courage and survival in modern warfare. Of the eight members of the SAS regiment who set off, only one escaped capture. This is his story. Left on his own, Chris Ryan beat off an Iraqi attack and set out alone. His greatest adventure was only just beginning. This is the story of courage under fire, of hairbreadth escapes, of the best trained soldiers in the world fighting against adverse conditions, and of one man's courageous refusal to lie down and die.
Kommentar: Mycket bra bok som bör läsas av alla. Ger en inblick i hur det kan vara att få problem bakom fiendens linjer och understödet är långt borta. Dessutom hur utlämnad man blir när den tekniska materielen heller inte funkar. INtressant också hur struligt, ont om materiel och information de hade, fastän de är Storbrittaniens elitstyrka och faktiskt befinner sig i krig. Man är inte avundsjuk på de strapatser de tvingas genomföra för att rädda sina liv. Ger en annan mer brutal bild av Gulfkriget än den genom siktet på en laserguidad bomb.

Zero Option

Zero Option

Författare: Chris Ryan
Språk: engelska
Utgivningsår: 1997
Beskrivning: SAS Sergeant Geordie Sharp is required to undertake two top-secret missions, in the full knowledge that, if things go wrong, the authorities will deny all involvement. In the first mission he is to serve as a commander of a hit team on a Black, or 100 per cent non-attributable operation assigned to the SAW, the Regiment's ultra-secret Subversive Action Wing. His target is an Iraqi who defected to Libya after the Gulf War. The aim is to kill him and leave no clue to the identity or origin of the assassins.
Returning to base, Sharp finds he must also carry out a high-level political assassination on mainland Britain. If he fails, his four-year-old son will die at the hands of the IRA. Trapped between opposing forces in a fight to the death, he twists and turns through a nightmare maze, desperately seeking some way of averting tragedy. Who will be hit the hardest - Geordie Sharp or the British Government?

Författare: Chris Ryan
Språk: engelska
Utgivningsår: 1998
Beskrivning:This is the novel in which SAS Sergeant Geordie Sharp, always a loner and a maverick, finally goes over the edge. He is sent to Moscow to lead a team training the Russian Protection Service, a division of the former KGB, to acquire new anti-terrorist skills. The Russian Mafia is threatening to take control of the country, and Geordie learns, too, of their massive new presence in London.
The secret side of his mission is to plant a nuclear device in the sewers of Moscow as protection against any future Russian attack on the UK, a renewed danger in view of fast increasing political volatility and lawlessness. After two of Geordie's team are kidnapped he realises that the Mafia have control of the nuclear device, and he learns subsequently that it is being transported back to the UK…
Kommentar:
Ganska intressant att plantera en atombomb i Moskva för USA´s räkning.

Tenth Man Down

Tenth Man Down

Författare: Chris Ryan
Språk: engelska
Utgivningsår:1999
Beskrivning:When an SAS team is sent to train government troops in Kamanga, a poverty-stricken and war-torn republic in the dark heart of southern Africa, Geordie Sharp is caught up in the most dangerous and difficult assignment of his career. At the outset of the mission a juju, or witch doctor, predicts that ten whites are going to die, and as the prediction starts to come true one by one down they go. In the south of Kamanga, rebel forces have seized the diamond mines which produce the bulk of the country's wealth. The aim of the crack government unit is to recover these lucrative assets, with Geordie Sharp and his squad providing much-needed backup. When the SAS men see that the rebels are boosted by ex-US Navy SEALs mercenaries, they begin to sense a hidden agenda. Before they can discover what it is, Sharp and two others fall into rebel hands. His comrade Whinger dies a hideous death, but Sharp manages to escape. At last Sharp stumbles onto the secret which is drawing such strong international interest - only to realise that he himself may have been exposed to a lethal dose of radiation in the process. Is he the tenth and last of the juju's victims?
Kommentar: Den bästa boken av Chris Ryan. Häpnadsväckande beskrivning av det afrikanska förband han tränar upp.

The Watchman

The Watchman

Författare: Chris Ryan
Språk: engelska
Utgivningsår: 2001
Beskrivning: Alex is a 36 year old SAS Captain. Recently commissioned from the ranks, he is returning from a hostage-rescue mission in Sierra Leone when he finds himself summoned back to the UK. Someone, it seems, has been murdering MI5 officers. And murdering them in a particularly gruesome and horrific way. A hammer is involved, as is a skinning-knife. The security services, however, are more concerned with the why than the how. Because it is beginning to look as if the killer is an insider, SAS-trained, one of the Regiment's own.
The body-count is mounting, and under strict cover of secrecy Alex is ordered to track down and eliminate the killer. To assist him in this task he is assigned an MI5 liaison officer - the attractive but abrasive Dawn Harding. And so begins a deadly and relentless manhunt. The killer, Alex discovers, was almost certainly an undercover soldier codenamed the Watchman who, in the early '90s, infiltrated the highest levels of the IRA's Army Council. He was - and without doubt remains - a lethally skilful operator. But why is the Watchman slaughtering his way through the upper ranks of the security services? A nightmare chase, a betrayal and a dawn firefight will all ensue before Alex learns the bitter truth: that in the shadowy battlegrounds of the Intelligence wars there is no good and no evil - there are only winners and losers.
Kommentar: Nick ställs mot en jämlike som likt han själv är mycket noggran. Endast en kan överleva...och ni vet ju vem det är, just det...

SANN BERÄTTELSE

Den ende som kom undan

Författare: Chris Ryan
Språk: svenska
Utgivningsår: 1993
Beskrivning: SAS uppdrag är att förstöra SCUD ramper och irakiska kommunikationsförbindelser under Gulfkriget bakom fiendens linjer, är tack vare Andy McNabs "Bravo Två Noll" och Chris Ryans "Den enda som kom undan" det mest berömd uppdraget i moden krigshistoria. Chris Ryan var med i samma grupp som Andy McNab och av de åtta medlemmarna i gruppen var Chris Ryan den enda som kom undan och slapp att bli tillfångatagen eller dödad. Detta är hans berättelse om den HÅRDA vägen till den syriska gränsen till fots genom den torra och stundtals iskalla irakiska öknen.
Kommentar: Mycket bra bok som bör läsas av alla. Ger en inblick i hur det kan vara att få problem bakom fiendens linjer och understödet är långt borta. Dessutom hur utlämnad man blir när den tekniska materielen heller inte funkar. Intressant också hur struligt, ont om materiel och information de hade, fastän de är Storbritanniens elitstyrka och faktiskt befinner sig i krig. Man är inte avundsjuk på de strapatser de tvingas genomföra för att rädda sina liv. Ger en annan mer brutal bild av Gulfkriget än den genom siktet på en laserguidad bomb som ju så ofta visades på CNN.
