Beskrivelse

As his story reveals in fascination detail, Amundsen´s triumph was due to careful planning, professionalism, and the intelligent use of technology, as well as to imagination, courage and teamwork. An inspirational leader, Amundsen was determined that the credit for the expedition´s success should be «equally divided among us all».
