Seventy-five years after George Mallory took the trek to become the first person to ascend Mount Everest, his remains were finally found. Back in 1924, the man disappeared while trying to reach the summit, leaving people eager to know whether he’d actually completed his mission. In Jeffrey Archer’s Paths of Glory, the author uses the true story as a basis for his fictional tale of curiosity. By recalling Mallory’s early life, through marriage, the birth of his child and fighting in the First World War, Archer builds a case to allow readers to decide if Mallory really deserves commendation for his climb.
