'In this book Capt. M.S. Kohli, the leader of the expedition, gives a first-hand account of the spectacular climb. It is the story of how the team took on the formidable task, from the birth of the idea and organising the expedition to battling the impossible odds on the treacherous slopes of the Himalaya, and leading to the unbelievable climax of four successive teams reaching the summit. 'The book exudes an air of intense excitement and a sense of challenge that characterised the whole expedition. It is a story of superb mountaineering skills, admirable team work and rare indomitable courage.' (jacket) [M.S. Kohli is the preminent Indian mountaineer.]
