  • "The Long Walk" - Book - USSR to India on foot with an improvised knife & axe head

    I found this book yesteday. I am on page 25 and it is now my favorite book on true survival stories.

    Cavalry officer Slavomir Rawicz was captured by the Red Army in 1939 during the German-Soviet partition of Poland and was sent to the Siberian Gulag along with other captive Poles, Finns, Ukranians, Czechs, Greeks, and even a few English, French, and American unfortunates who had been caught up in the fighting. A year later, he and six comrades from various countries escaped from a labor camp in Yakutsk and made their way, on foot, thousands of miles south to British India, where Rawicz reenlisted in the Polish army and fought against the Germans. The Long Walk recounts that adventure, which is surely one of the most curious treks in history.

      I have been doing a little bit of poking around on the web. The BBC alegedly has debunked the story as being fabricated. Either way it is an interesting story.
