Herzog's Himalayan Horror

The book tells the interesting story of the French expedition to Annapurna in 1950, at that time it was the highest mountain ever climbed. They had very little information about the area and inaccurate maps, they treated the climb more or less like an alpine climb and were not fully prepared for the difficulties presented by climbing in the Himalayan mountains. Despite the difficulties they succeeded in climbing the mountain but at a great personal cost to the two summit climbers.
