This translation sticks closely to the original German text. Thus Bauer's First World War reminiscences and contemporary political rhetoric remain. The 1929 and 1931 attempts on this mountain were carried out with admirable German efficiency. Details such as Bauer's use of snow caves and lightweight equipment make one believe that, had the weather co-operated, these men would have reached the summit. Strangely, this book was awarded a gold medal at the Olympic Games in 1932! ( )
