Already having read Harrer s Seven Years in Tibet a few times and recently The Radio Operator Robert Ford s Last Stand in the Fight to Save Tibet it seems I have now gone full circle by also reading Lost in Tibet The Untold Story of Five American Airmen a Doomed Plane and the Will to SurviveThese three books tell what kind of country Tibet used to be before the Chinese took over Did I mention that I traveled Tibet in 1987 What makes Lost in Tibet an absolutely outstanding book is that than the other two it explains the political backdrop On the surface the events look like nothing unusual An American plane gets carried from its path by a violent storm the five man crew bails out the plane crashes The five airmen find themselves in Tibet Forget that they know nothing about Tibet that some of them are a bit injured that they have no idea how they can get back to civilization their presence creates a series of unforeseen disturbances From Tibetans who are offended with their presence because they insulted the Dalai Lama by flying in between him and the heavens to Chinese diplomats who want to solidify their presence in Tibet and are worried that the plane crash is an Americans cover up to British and American diplomats who theoretically stand with Tibet as an independent country but in light of World Wars II going on have to keep their own interests in mind In the midst of these power struggles are the five airmen who want to get back to their airbase but realize that in a country that has only one big stream no paved roads no electricity only three cars without fuel and happens to be on a high plateau half the size of Europe elevation 12000 to 16000 feet things are not that easy Having been in Tibet I was most fascinated by authors description how many factors had contributed to the Tibet becoming an autonomous province of China The corrupt regent system the Tibetans habit to postpone important decisions and following old rituals and not taking the Chinese efforts as serious as they should haveThis must have something to do the Tibetan atmosphere I traveled to Tibet in January 1987 Even though I flew from Chengdu to Lhasa it was a very complicated trip In January 1987 less than 50 foreigners were in town Visiting there and seeing Tibet I thought Tibet is eternal just like the Tibetans described in this book not much would and could changeJust like the Tibetans did not see the danger that China would take over I was completely wrong with my guess In 2006 the inghai Tibet Railway was be opened Over 80% of the 709 miles long section between Golmud and Lhasa are at an elevation of over 13000 feet In this book authors Murcutt and Starks write No land route across Tibet was ever built Because I knew that I did not think that the Chinese could build one railroad up there indeed they are building a second line as I write this Lost in Tibet The Untold Story of Five American Airmen a Doomed Plane and the Will to Survive is a fascinating book that also tells the story of how the Chinese take over beganThe best book I read this year This one I will reread5 starsGisela Hausmann author blogger
