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.
