A lavishly illustrated large format history of the Mount Everest expeditions from 1921-1978.

Herrligkoffer describes in more detail the two expeditions he led, 1972 (1st European Mt. Everest Expedition, attempt on the south-west wall) and 1978 (Franco-German Mt. Everest Expedition, via the southeast ridge); On the latter expedition a total of 16 participants reached the summit (including Mack, Hillmaier, Engl, Jäger, Afanassieff, Mazeaud, Diemberger, Hupfauer, Rutkiewicz). Referenced in these reference books: Perret 2231 (Ed 1973), Yakushi H 168, Salkeld: Mt. Everest H 12. (Not in Neate who lists English language books only.)

The author, Karl Maria Herrligkoffer (1916 - 1991) was a German doctor. Between 1953 and 1986 Herrligkoffer organized and led numerous German and Austrian expeditions to eight-thousanders in the Himalayas and Karakoram, most famously Nanga Parbat.
