As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me by Joseph Martin Bauer


As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me by Joseph Martin Bauer

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.


Bauer has given us more than a prisoner-of-war story; he has left us one of the greatest adventure stories. * Die Welt * One of the wildest adventure books of our time. * Curt Hohof, Suddeutsche Zeitung * A story of human courage, endurance and terror. * Washington Post *
