History has rarely accorded as much attention to a single expedition as that given to the British Antarctic (Terra Nova) Expedition 1910-13 led by Captain Robert Falcon Scott. The death of the Pole party and the success of Amundsen and his men has always been the main focus of interest. But what of the rest of the men? In 1910 Scott sent six men, the Northern party, under the command of Lieutenant Victor Campbell, to explore along the coast of King Edward VII Land. After a successful ten months at Cape Adare they moved to Inexpressible Island, as stormy and desolate a place as could be found anywhere on the planet. The failure of the relief ship to collect them at the end of the summer left them marooned with no hut and little food. Campbell kept all the men alive through the winter in a snow cave, 12 x 9 . He drew an imaginary line down the middle of the cave. One side represented the officer s wardroom, the other the men s mess deck and such was the discipline that the enlisted men could say what they wanted on their side of the line, as could the officers on theirs. Each group turned a deaf ear to the other. After the winter, in October 1912, Campbell led them over 230 miles of sea ice back to the base at Cape Evans, only to learn of the fate of Captain Scott and the Pole party. The death of Scott overshadowed Campbell s achievements, which easily rank with Shackleton s epic journey two years later. "Its focus is a saga of endurance that should be counted among the most famous exploits in Polar history" Campbell's papers were acquired by the Memorial University of Newfoundland, and here, for the first time, is the leader's tale of a remarkable epic of polar endurance. The book is hardback, jacketed and is illustrated with many unpublished photographs taken by the partyand illustrations and sketches by Campbell himself.
