For those who find this article interesting, I highly recommend the book Freedom Climbers by Bernadette McDonald (https://www.amazon.com/Freedom-Climbers-Bernadette-McDonald/...). It tells the story of the core group of Polish climbers who did the first ascents of most of the 8000m peaks in winter, many via alpine-style ascents and new routes.
