HISTORY. The final letters and diary entries of Robert Falcon Scott - written in his last days, while hopelessly trapped in a tiny tent by a raging blizzard on the Great Ice Barrier - are among the most poignant and haunting passages ever penned. 'Had we lived, ' he wrote, 'I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance, and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman.' Scott's diaries, discovered with his body the next spring and then used as the essence of the book Scott's Last Expedition, caught the public imagination in a way few tales of exploration ever have. The account of Scott's second Antarctic expedition describes the near-disastrous voyage south, the dangers and beauties of the long, dark winter, and the brutal hardships of the trek to the South Pole

In November 1910, the vessel Terra Nova left New Zealand carrying an international team of explorers led by Robert Falcon Scott, an Englishman determined to be the first man to reach the South Pole. Scott kept a detailed journal of his adventures until March 29, 1912, when he and the few remaining members of his team met their ends in a brutal blizzard. The daily progress of the expedition toward the pole is recorded in an immensely vivid and personal narrative, depicting the beauty of the Antarctic tundra, the harsh living conditions, and Scott's own desperation to beat rival explorers

"Wären wir am Leben geblieben, ich hätte eine Geschichte erzählen müssen von Kühnheit, Ausdauer und vom Mut meiner Gefährten, die das Herz jedes Briten gerührthätte." R.F. Scott Robert Falcon Scott ging als tragische Gestalt in die Geschichte der grossen Entdecker ein: 35 Tage nach seinem norwegischen Konkurrenten Roald Amundsen erreichte er am 16. Januar 1912 den Südpol und fand auf dem strapaziösen Rückweg in die englische Heimat zusammen mit seinen vier Kameraden in den eisigen Temperaturen der Antarktis den Tod. Der Nachwelt hinterliess er nur das Tagebuch, das er während der Expedition führte. Im Gegensatz zu den Aufzeichnungen anderer Forschungsreisender ist dieses Tagebuch weit mehr als das wissenschaftliche Dokument der einzelnen Entdeckungen und Beobachtungen eines leidenschaftlichen Forschers. Es ist die tragische und berührende Autobiographie eines Menschen, der angesichts von Enttäuschung, Hunger und Kälte mit grossem Mut und Willenskraft für sich und seine Kameraden einsteht und sein Schicksal am Ende ohne Reue annehmen kann. Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) Zweimal unternimmt der britische Marineoffizier eine Expedition zum Südpol. Die erste scheitert an der mangelhaften Vorbereitung auf das Überleben unter antarktischen Bedingungen und muss vorzeitig abgebrochen werden. Bei der zweiten erreicht er zwar den Südpol, kehrt aber nicht lebend nach England zurück. Erst acht Monate nach seinem Tod wird Scotts Leiche gefunden - zusammen mit seinem Tagebuch, einem wissenschaftlichen und menschlichen Zeugnis von Rang, mit dem er auf tragische Weise in die Geschichte eingeht
