As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me

Josef M. Bauer

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Biography: general, True stories of heroism, endurance & survival, Prose: non-fiction

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.

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.
