George Mallory and Andrew Irvine researcher Jochen Hemmleb has just published his new book ‘Tatort Mount Everest – Der Fall Mallory’ which in English means ‘Crime Scene Mount Everest – The Mallory Case’.
At the moment it is only published in German, but hopefully the publisher will realize that people outside Germany have a big interest in the Mallory & Irvine saga and eventually publish it in English.
From Jochen’s website at www.jochenhemmleb.com:
Ten Years ago, on May 1, 1999, the “Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition” (of which I was one of the instigators and participants) discovered the body of Himalayan pioneer George Mallory, 75 years after his disappearance on Mount Everest in 1924. The find made headlines worldwide and reignited a decades-old debate: Were Mallory and his partner, Andrew Irvine, the first to climb the world’s highest mountain, 29 years before Hillary and Tensing?
The search for a solution to the riddle of Mallory and Irvine is a threefold journey. First, there is Mallory and Irvine’s last climb and the traces telling of its course. Then there are the experiences of other expeditions, giving insights into what Mallory and Irvine might have done. And lastly, there are my own formative years of detective work.
