Author of "Into The Silence", Wade Davis sets the scene in Britain in the early 1920s prior to George Mallory's attempt to scale Everest. Post World War I, Britain was still strong militarily, but domestically, very broken. Also, having been unsuccessful in attempts to be first to reach the North and South Poles, Britain hope a victory with Everest would restore some national pride.
