As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me : The Extraordinary True Story of One Man's Escape from a Siberian Labor Camp and His 3-Year Trek to Freedom
by Josef M. Bauer




Overview -
Like Unbroken and The Long Walk, an intense and remarkable tale of survival against the odds that reveals the strength of the human spirit. Translated into 15 languages 12 million copies sold

In 1944, German paratrooper Clemens Forell was captured by the Soviets and sentenced to twenty-five years of labor in a Siberian lead mine. In the Gulags, this was virtually a death sentence. Driven to desperation by the brutality of the prison camp, he staged a daring escape.

For the next three years, Forell traveled 8,000 miles in barren, frozen wilderness, haunted by blizzards, wolves, criminals, the KGB, and the fear of recapture and retribution. Only a remarkable will to survive, and a bit of luck, allowed him to reach the safety of the Persian border.

The resulting story is a rare document of the horrors faced by POWs in the Soviet Union, and a testament to the human spirit.
