When this novel was first published in 1956 it created a sensation It claimed to be a memoir of a man who with seven others had escaped from a Siberian prison work camp in 1942 and managed to walk all the way to British India The story was eagerly consumed by the cold war era public who were enad by the tale of an escape from the evil empire of the Soviet Union It was an incredible story of endurance that reuired walking across the Gobi Desert and over the Himalayan MountainsResearch of Soviet records since the cold war has revealed that while it is true that the author had been a prisoner in Siberia in the early 1940s he did not escape in the manner described in this book Instead he was released as part of a 1942 general amnesty and subseuently transported across the Caspian Sea to a refugee camp in Iran He did end up living in Britain and probably passed through India on the way thereI m surprised that anybody believed the story in the first place because of its many technical flaws If the author had called the book a novel I would criticize for being unrealistic and in need of additional research into means of survival in the desert and mountains Unfortunately the author claimed it to be a true memoir of his experiences I say unfortunate because it clearly makes him to be a liarIf there is any possibility of truth in the story it may be that Slavomir Rawics stole the story from another person who actually walked such a journey I think it s possible that prisoners from Siberia managed to escape to India but I m uite confident that they didn t do it by walking across the Gobi without euipment and a map Their crossing of the Himalayas has similar problems And the book s claim that they saw Abominable Snowman ie The Yeti establishes the fact beyond all doubt that the book is fiction and fiction not very well doneBut the fact remains that the idea of escaping from Siberia to India is a heck of a story The 2011 movie The Way Back is based on this book Maybe the movie is realistic but I ve not seen the movie so I can t judge it The movie s popularity caused the book to be republished and conseuently brought to my attention You can read about the controversy regarding the authenticity of the book at this Wikipedia article The following review from PageADay s 2007 Book Lover s Calendar was how I first learned about the bookBACK IN PRINTRawicz s memoir is one of the most extraordinary and harrowing you will ever read A young Polish officer in World War II Rawicz was captured by Soviet forces and sent to a work camp in Siberia In 1941 he and six fellow prisoners escaped and with only an ax head and a makeshift knife trekked thousands of miles through Siberian tundra the Gobi desert and over the Himalayas to freedom in British occupied India The New York Times calls Rawicz a poet with steel in his soul and Sebastian Junger The Perfect Storm calls the book one of the epic treks of the human race THE LONG WALK THE TRUE STORY OF A TREK TO FREEDOM by Slavomir Rawicz 1956 The Lyons Press 1997
