A clear and honest account from the remarkable experiences of Mike Trueman - a British Army Gurkha officer.

Having survived force-10 gales in the Irish sea during the Fastnet disaster which claimed 15 lives, Trueman was yet again to feel the ferocity of the elements again in the 1996 Mount Everest Tragedy. Trueman managed to descend from Camp 2 and coordinate a rescue effort form Base Camp.

This memoir offers a compelling and personal perspective of these events in which Briton, Matthews, disappeared after Trueman crossed paths with him during his decent.
