After the conquest of the South Pole by Amundsen in 1911, there remained a single, grandiose record to be captured in the polar earth: the crossing of Antarctica on foot from one sea to another.

After the conquest of the South Pole by Amundsen in 1911, there remained a single, grandiose record to be captured in the polar earth: the crossing of Antarctica on foot from one sea to another. This should have been the purpose of the expedition, undertaken in 1914, which Sir Ernest Shackleton had been cultivating for years. On May 20, 1916, three emaciated figures appeared on the platform of Stromness station, in South Georgia, from where they had left aboard Endurance two years earlier. All trace of them had been lost. The ship, finding itself stranded in the pack, had forced the crew to remain at the mercy of the ice movements for ten long months and then had been destroyed. Hence the incredible epic of survival: an epic that is narrated in a travel diary, capable of conquering entire generations of readers.
