Although it's a piece of history learned by every British student, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 remains an epic story unknown to many. In this ultimate showing of life and boundless bravery, Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory.Arriving at the South Pole on January 18, 1912, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag. Disheartened and badly frostbitten, they trudged back toward their boat, only to die just eleven miles from the next depot. Featuring a collection of stunning black-and-white photography alongside entries from Scott's harrowing diary, this volume starkly presents this well-documented journey.
