In 1944, German paratrooper Clemens Forell was captured by the Soviets and sentenced to twenty-five years of labor in a Siberian lead mine. In the Gulags, this was virtually a death sentence. Driven to desperation by the brutality of the prison camp, he staged a daring escape. For the next three years, Forell traveled 8,000 miles in barren, frozen wilderness, haunted by blizzards, wolves, criminals, the KGB, and the fear of recapture and retribution. Only a remarkable will to survive, and a bit of luck, allowed him to reach the safety of the Persian border. The resulting story is a rare document of the horrors faced by POWs in the Soviet Union, and a testament to the human spirit.

Review:

A story of human courage, endurance and terror. (Washington Post)

One of the wildest adventure books of our time. (Curt Hohof, Süddeutsche Zeitung)

Bauer has given us more than a prisoner-of-war story; he has left us one of the greatest adventure stories. (Die Welt)

Book Description:

The true story of a German soldier's escape from a Siberian prison camp following World War II, and his struggle for survival during an 8000-mile journey to freedom across some of the most treacherous and inhospitable conditions on earth.
