Product Description

Review

"Hell with a Capital H is a wonderful book and the result of painstaking research. Katherine Lambert has produced a well-balanced analysis of Scott and of many of his expediiton team. The main focus of her gripping story centres on the horrendous tribulations of the isolated Northern Party. Better than any of the many Scott biographies I have read, this book brings out the real characters of the participants and the interplay between them as they dally in their icy and all but fatal Hell." (Ranulph Fiennes)

Book Description

A Pimlico Original which tells for the first time a breathtaking story of Antarctic survival and of the man who made it possible.

Format: Paperback
A great story, indeed, but this account of it is marred by a quite a few silly errors (which a competent editor / proof reader should perhaps have weeded out) and some very peculiar assertions by the author. Anyone familiar with the bare bones of the `Terra Nova' story (and surely anyone reading this will already have read a good number of other accounts of the 1910-1913 expedition) may soon feel some disquiet, and perhaps begin to wonder about the veracity of the less well-known aspects of the `Terra Nova' expedition which this book concentrates on.

It gets off to a bad start with the unjustified branding of Cherry-Garrard as a "prime example" of one of "life's suckers", ostensibly because he was willing to muck in and get his hands dirty. There are repeated references to "Shackleton's hut" at Hut Point (the `Discovery hut' might be a more apt term). The book suggests that Bowers was "in his thirties" (he wasn't)... most troubling of all is the revelation that Oates' body was found (it wasn't).... So are we to believe what we read about the hitherto somewhat overshadowed `Northern Party'? It could well be that the answer to this question is 'yes' because the author has clearly approached her 'core subject' with gusto and understanding. It's a real shame that she was so casual when dealing with basic facts about the rest of the expedition.

If Andy McNab wrote this you would say he was off his trolley but this is true heroism from real people. This is the story of part of Captain Scotts final expedition to the south pole who had to overwinter in a ice hole on the antartic ice. It is an almost unbelieveable tale of endurance and how people react in difficult situations. I would recommend it as a management text book on how true leaders work and manage teams.
The narrative is very clear and when the author has made her own conclusions this is made clear.
