The World-War gave rise to many strange and thrilling journeys, only a few of which have been printed. The story of Dr. Kassowitz's experiences as an Austrian army surgeon attached to combatant troops, his capture by the Russians and removal to Siberia, his escape with a comrade and flight in Chinese disguise across the frozen wilderness of North China to the relative safety of the Austrian Legation in Pekin and his eventual return to Austria after imprisonment by the British at Gibraltar,—all this high adventure is told vividly and modestly and almost too briefly in this attractive little volume.
