This review is from: The Voyage of the Discovery (Wordsworth Classics of World Literature) (Paperback)
For me one of the most significant books that I have had the joy of reading.At last a book that shows the huge achievements of Scott . Sir Ranulph Fiennes at last puts the record straight .
Ranulph has crossed the Antartic on foot . He knows of all the difficulties and perils. Applauds Scotts achievement from a position of knowledge.For instance Titus Oats was a brave and difficult man. Oats disguised physical problems resulted in his death and contributed to the death of his companions. So many revisionist armchair authors lauded Oats and damned Scott . Raulph Fiennes puts the record straight about so many things
A beautifully written book from personal experience and knowledge .Awonderful read.
