Detailed Product Description
Italy, Ferrari Editrice, 1995, 1st edition. 206 pages. In Italian. New gray hardcover with dust jacket.

Bonatti was the youngest participant of the 1954 Italian expedition to K2 organized by Ardito Desio. As Bonatti said afterward at the age of 80: "It was the era when European countries picked off the 8,000m peaks in the same way they had colonies 100 years previously."

On July 31, two members of the Italian team Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni reached the summit, securing the first ascent of K2 for the Italian team. However, years after the expedition Bonatti found himself accused and at the center of a bitter controversy based on conflicting accounts of events which occurred during the ascent. Only 53 years later, did the Italian Alpine Club officially recognize that both Lacedelli and Compagnoni lied in their account of the ascent and that Bonatti's version of the facts was accurate.

Il Caso K2 40 Anni Dopo is the story of K2 by Walter Bonatti. The book is supported by the testimony of Dr. Robert Marshall of Melbourne, a surgeon who has followed the alpine career and the historical events of Walter Bonatti for many years and has contributed to clarify the effective use of oxygen cylinders by Lacedelli and Compagnoni up to the top of the K2. He disputes their assertion that they were "without the availability of oxygen for many hours", as they contended for years. This last book by Bonatti is a work that tends to arrive at a fixed point on the story after forty years of controversy and will become a classic of the mountain.
