Description
 
Sydney Wignall. The story of the Welsh Himalayan expedition, organized by Sydney Wignall in 1955 to climb Tibet’s highest mountain, Gurla Mandhata. To protect the lives of those involved, it was over 40 years before this riveting true story could be told. Wignall & 2 of his companions had been recruited by Indian intelligence to report on Chinese military operations in Tibet. The unlikely spies were captured & imprisoned by the Chinese Red Army. The Chinese released the 3 spies, & their trek to safety across a deadly Himalayan pass in the depth of winter is an amazing testament to the will to survive. B&W photos.
