The title of this book should be The Dalai Lama ‘s Flight from Tibet. It tells the events that happened in Tibet from 13 Feb to 25 March 1959. The Dalai Lama revolted and fled.
Told solely from the perspective of the Dalai Lama it has many interesting descriptions of a land still mysterious. It brings back vivid memories of my visit to Lhasa. I was fortunate to pick up this book in Kathmandu on 4 Nov 2003.
Do note this book is different from The Flight of the Dalai Lama also by Noel Barber.
