Why people continue treating this book/movie as documentary?
Wasn't it already established that this is just fiction?

The controversy over this half century has done nothing but bring about more interest in the story. The fact that Slavomir was able to keep everyone guessing until his death was pretty wicked. Only time I ever had ever had a serious conversation with someone from the main stream film industry was regarding this book.

What's the other favourite book between your first two :?:

Somehow the thread's book reminds me of Seven Years in Tibet...


We Die Alone...a legit and well documented story of a Norwegian spy by the name of Jan Baalsrud. Howarth, the author, had his own doubt of some of the circumstances until he visited most each and every location involved in Jan's story and confirmed his recollection via various, but separate, witness accounts. I have original editions of both books. I have often toyed with the idea of following his footsteps, including a very cold and arduous swim.


So am I understanding you correctly that you believe the story of "The Long Walk"? Not second guessing you, just want to clarify. Sounds like "We Die Alone" is a must read!!
