A fansinating read
on 15 February 2000
The tale of Mallory & Irvine is a fascinating one and Holzel & Salkeld book does the tale justice giving a thoroughly entertaining description of all the expeditions and of Mallory's life. What lets this book down is an over analysis of the facts and what could have happened to Mallory & Irvine, and I would have liked to have known more about the discovery of the body of Mallory, the important news, which is skipped over.
Overall a book well worth reading.
