As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me

Bauer, Joseph Martin - Clemens Forell
As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me
Book Number: 67211
Andre Deutsch, London, 1957. 8vo hardcover 254pp Good, some foxing to endpapers & edges, some marks on cover, owner's name on fep. Originally published in 1955, this must be one of the most dramatic adventures of our time. Clemens Forell, a German soldier, was sentenced to 25 years of forced labour in a Siberian lead mine after the Second World War. Rebelling against the brutality of the camp, Forell staged a daring escape, enduring an 8000-mile journey across the trackless wastes of Siberia, in some of the most treacherous and inhospitable conditions on earth. Bauer''s writing brilliantly evokes Forell''s desperation in the prison camp, and his struggle for survival and terror of recapture as he makes his way towards the Persian frontier and freedom.
