Annapurna - Histoire d'une legende

For decades, the general public's knowledge of the Annapurna adventure was limited to Maurice Herzog's book 'The First 8000 metre Peak' which sold over 10 million copies. In the last few years,though, accounts by other protagonists of the adventure - Louis Lachenal, Herzog's companion on the summit, Lionel Terray, Sherpa Tarkey, the Rebuffat notebooks - have been published. What pushed the French, who had not participated much in the great pre-war Himalayan expeditions, to commit themselves (through the Alpine federation) in the race to conquer the first 8000 metre peak? What motivated those who accomplished this extraordinary feat? What's the true story behind the legend of the conquest?
