Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Cavalry officer Slavomir Rawicz was captured by the Red Army in 1939 during the German-Soviet partition of Poland and was sent to the Siberian Gulag along with other captive Poles, Finns, Ukranians, Czechs, Greeks, and even a few English, French, and American unfortunates who had been caught up in the fighting. A year later, he and six comrades from various countries escaped from a labor camp in Yakutsk and made their way, on foot, thousands of miles south to British India, where Rawicz reenlisted in the Polish army and fought against the Germans. The Long Walk recounts that adventure, which is surely one of the most curious treks in history. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

9 von 10 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Frederick C. Sebly am 2. Dezember 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Today, Most of us have a soft, comfortable and safe life. We are confident that we are in control. It is most likely the people featured in this book felt the same way at one time. Yes, this is a true story about several innocent individuals leading normal lives until the Second World War came along. Then, through the toss of the dice, they found themselves together in a Russian prison camp in Siberia.
I felt they would perish many times over before they arrived at the prison compound. They not only survived up to this point in time, but after their escape, went on to suffer hardships many times greater than all previous. This is not a sob story about people feeling sorry for themselves. No, it is about determination, miracles, grit and attitude.
My Father introduced this book to me. I now have passed it along to my son. When I first read it, I could not put it down. I read through the day, into the evening and finally finished it in the early morning hours. I have never experienced this passion for a book. I wish a movie was made based on this hardship. The best part is that it is told by Slavomir Rawicz, who was one of the escapees. I feel certain that after this humbling and shattering life experience, he told it from deep within his soul. I do not feel there was any fluff added.
I liked it as I have never liked a book, ever. It was as if I got on board a roller coaster, strapped myself in, and took off on a scary but thrilling journey, completly safe, yet somtimes a little frightened at what I saw. I came away with the feeling that today, in America, there is truly no cause for anyone to complain about their petty problems. Relatively speaking, we have no problems. We are pampered. I used it as a learning experience. I tucked it away in my memory. For today we too, are comfortable, safe, and confident. Who knows what the dice hold in store for us?

Format: Taschenbuch
This is an amazing book which is among the most compelling accounts of the human spirit that I have ever read or heard. At the same time it is a beacon on the inhumanity that man can impart upon his fellow human beings. There is beautiful juxtaposition of these two qualities throughout the book. I was almost moved to tears several times throughout the book (and I think the last time I cried was during E.T.!) My sister gave this book to me after she read it in one sitting because she could not put it down. It is the kind of book that will forever stay with you, and that is really the gift of Mr. Rawicz, and the gift to him as well. He imparts us never to forget what has happened and to learn from our past, to realize that to all injustices there are human faces attached, and very real consequences. However, at the same time it is an adventure story which is so incredible it grips you and does not release its hold. If this were fiction it would be amazing, the fact that it is true stretches the mind to new dimensions. Definitely one of the most powerful books you can read. A must for anyone who seeks to learn and to grow as a human, and in this way we can pay tribute to men like Slavomir Rawicz.

Format: Taschenbuch
I highly recommend this book. The best part about it is the contrast between the insane society under totalitarian Stalin and the compassionate society seen in Tibet and Tibet-influenced Mongolia and Buryatia.
Now, as to the truth of the account: Some aspects of the book ring true:
1.) As someone who has walked over 2000 miles in a 6 month period, I can say that the distances covered in the book (20-30 miles/day) are reasonable. 2.) Descriptions of Tibetans, Mongols & Buryats ring true with my experience & knowledge. 3.) Description of incarcerated life seems quite real & perhaps is hard to fake in detail.
However, some things don't quite jibe: 1.) I'm told its almost impossible to live beyond 3-5 days with out water. (Weeks with out food is not problem however) 2.) What about the other members of the journey. They could not go home so they are in free countries with free media who would be glad to tell their tale. Especially the American (conveniently named "Smith") would have come to light by now, unless, of course, he really was a spy.
The most likely scenario in my opinion is that some sort of escape through Tibet took place, but that the escapees were much less innocent than described in the book. Some of the escapees may have died in other ways, and indeed Russians may have been killed by the desperate prisoners to avoid capture. Note that when the woman is discovered, the prisoners initially say "we will have to kill him" Something like this may have happened in real life.
In spite of likely creative remembering above, in the end we should probably let bygones be bygones and appaud Rawicz for (rightfully) pointing out the sad fate of fogotten Poland at the hands of communist invaders.

This is an amazing (adventure) story, even if, as some people claim, not all of it really happened the way described here. It reminded me strongly of the famous SOWEIT DIE FUESSE TRAGEN (AS FAR AS MY FEET WILL CARRY ME). I also have the feeling that it would be a great idea to turn this story into a film.
