Into the Silence
Into the Silence The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest By Davis, Wade Book - 2011 | First edition.

Dense but oh-so-interesting! Davis has researched this book for years and years, and - as always - his writing is clear and accessible. Some people call World War I " one of the worst tragedies humankind brought upon ourselves". Davis, though his focus is on Mallory, explores and finds threads connecting British imperialism,
World War I and the history of mountaineering in Britain and in the Himalayas.
