Description

On this expedition, Shackleton would record the greatest achievements of his career and make some of his most momentous decisions. It was to be an epic and dangerous adventure. While one team battled hundreds of miles to plant the Union Jack at the South Magnetic Pole, Shackleton led another team toward the geographic South Pole. Despite being plagued by hunger, cruel weather and unseen crevasses, they persevered to within ninety-seven miles of the Pole. But things were to get even worse
