Paths of Glory is an enthralling novel by Jeffrey Archer that explores the life and ambitions of George Mallory, a man with a dream so magnificent that its fulfillment would secure his place in history. Set in the early twentieth century, the book delves into Mallory's journey from being a brilliant student and a member of the influential Bloomsbury Group at Cambridge to his service in the Royal Garrison Artillery during World War I.

After the war, Mallory settles into a seemingly ordinary life, marrying and becoming a schoolteacher while raising three children. However, his passion for mountain climbing sets him apart. Mallory famously quipped that he wanted to climb Mt. Everest simply because it is there, encapsulating his unwavering determination to conquer the highest peak in the world.

In 1924, at the age of thirty-seven and on his third attempt, Mallory and his climbing partner, Andrew Irvine, set out on their fateful expedition. Tragically, they were last seen just four hundred feet from the summit. Mallory's body was discovered in 1999, but the question of whether he and Irvine reached the summit remains a mystery.

Jeffrey Archer masterfully weaves Mallory's story in Paths of Glory, leaving readers to ponder the ultimate fate of this remarkable individual. The novel skillfully explores Mallory's ambitions, his dedication to mountaineering, and the risks he took in pursuit of his dream. As the narrative unfolds, readers are compelled to decide for themselves if Mallory's name deserves to be counted among the legends of history, alongside individuals such as Christopher Columbus, Florence Nightingale, and Neil Armstrong, or if his ambition ultimately fell short.

With Archer's signature storytelling prowess, Paths of Glory delivers a gripping tale that keeps readers captivated until the final page. It is a triumph of a novel, inviting readers to reflect on the nature of ambition, the pursuit of dreams, and the indomitable spirit of those who dare to reach for greatness.
