5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant biography of basically unknown and overlooked personality in the field of physiology and science of climbing., 9 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent well told story of forgotten climber in the post-war years when the Brits felt that Everest must be climbed by them first!
Pugh's contribution in other areas of adventure training, recognition of the perils of hypothermia csan not be understated. The author's relationship with her father is quite moving and sad, but she has done a first rate job in describing his contribution to success in many fields.

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed account of the military successes and disasters of the War, 9 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Principled account from the military standpoint of the war. Haig seems to be excused for his
decisions with regard to the policy of 'attrition' whereby thousands of men died at the Somme and
later at 3rd Battle of Ypres. A comprehensive account of the military manoeuvres across the piece.
