Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars 1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars I was most satisfied to find the book in German 15 Jan. 2015
By Anthony J. Lomenzo - Published on Amazon.com

Ausgezeichnet! [Excellent!]. Switching over to English --- this book which is in GERMAN deals with the journals of Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his final expedition to the Antarctic in 1911-12. I was most satisfied to find it in German as it helps me to keep up the study of the German language which, if let go, can get mighty rusty! It's interesting as well to see the particular German wordage used when, of course, Scott wrote his journal/diary in English right to the bitter end [on or about March 29, 1912] and how various of his well known English wordage has been put into German and the German words used to best reflect what Captain Scott was writing at the time. I got the Kindle edition for $1.99 and you can't beat that! Here's an example from the book as Scott [and Henry "Birdie" Bowers and Dr. Edward Wilson] approached the end on that final day --- "Freitag, 29 März -- Seit dem 21. hat es unaufhörlich aus Südwest gestürmt -- Jeden Tag waren wir bereit, nach unserm nur noch 20 Kilometer entfernten Depot zu marschieren, aber draußen vor der Zelttür ist die ganze Landschaft ein wirbelndes Schneegestöber . Wir können jettz nicht mehr auf Besserung hoffen. Aber wir werden bis zum Ende aushalten; der Tod kann nicht mehr fern sein. Es ist ein Jammer, aber ich glaube nicht, daß ich noch weiter schreiben kann. R. Scott -- Um Gottes willen -- sorgt für unsere Hinterbliebenen!"

I can't fully subscribe to the Captain Scott as characterized by Scott's detractor, Roland Huntford, ==yet== I also can't fully subscribe to the Captain Scott as characterized by Scott's defender, Sir Ranulph Fiennes. I think the real Scott is somewhere in between! He DID make mistakes but then again his iconic replacement in terms of heaps of Antarctic praise, Sir Ernest Shackleton, also had his share of mistakes as did the Antarctic icon of Roald Amundsen but then too, there is a very fine line between known fact and conjured historical conjecture. Look at this quoted statement: "All three [** Scott. Shackleton and Amundsen] made deadly errors, had grave character flaws and, at some point in their careers, caused other men to die." That is ==NOT== a line from Huntford but rather Sir Ranulph Fiennes in the introduction of his book, page xiii, "Captain Scott." On the other hand, when Fiennes gives as his book dedication and I quote, "To the families of the defamed dead" , it's clear that Sir Ranulph has an agenda to defend Scott while Huntford keeps talking about [since 1979] his quest for the truth even to the point of supporting his 1979 book on Scott with a later produced tome comparative and literal side by side recitation book on the selected [and therefore opening himself up to the J'accuse of "cherry picking"] journals of both Scott and Amundsen and a clear call for the reader to make his/her own call. It's not easy. The "gray areas" , by and large, and in some cases, still remain gray and the subject of ongoing and indeed intense debate.
