Spy on the Roof of the World by Sydney Wignall

A riveting adventure memoir chronicling Wignalls 1955 participation in an expedition to climb Tibets highest mountain, Gurla Mandhata, and his not so incidental spy activities as part of a covert Indian intelligence operation. The author and his companions were subsequently captured by the Chinese, imprisoned, tortured, and finally released only to face a trek across a Himalayan pass while suffering from malnourishment and dysentry. Its the kind of story that a fiction writer would be hard pressed to invent and is told with great aplomb and even humor. Lacks an index and bibliography. Includes photographs and maps.
