Gripping saga of exploration of the unknown by real men. Should be compulsory reading for all students to educate them on what can be achieved through persistence and never giviing in! That Shackelton got knighted for bringing back 55 of the 58 who left is small recgnition for his commitment to his men. Makes me want to travel in his footsteps to understand the events that the team experienced
Wonderful to read. Well written, full of interest and suspense. I was awed to read of the courage of the men, their resilience despite terrible events overtaking them, and the amazing leadership of Shackleton. Highly recommended.
