      Described by the Boardman Tasker judges as "one of the most important mountaineering books to be written for many years", Freedom Climbers tells the story of the extraordinary Polish adventurers who emerged from under the blanket of oppression following the Second World War to become the world's leading Himalayan climbers.

      Although they lived in a war-ravaged landscape, with seemingly no hope of creating a meaningful life, these curious, motivated and skilled mountaineers built their own free-market economy under the very noses of their Communist bosses and climbed their way to liberation.

      Freedom Climbers is a meticulously researched and beautifully crafted book, of the highest quality in this genre - a worthy winner of the 2011 Boardman Tasker Award and a must read for all climbers or anyone with so much as a passing interest in mountaineering history.
