In 1910 Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen set sail for Antarctica, each from his own starting point, and the epic race for the South Pole was on. For the first time Scott's unedited diaries run alongside those of both Amundsen and Olav Bjaaland, never before translated into English. Cutting through the welter of controversy to the events at the heart of the story, Huntford weaves the narrative from the protagonists' accounts of their own fate. What emerges is a whole new understanding of what really happened on the ice and the definitive account of the Race for the South Pole

"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

The voyage of the Discovery by Robert Falcon Scott( )

23 editions published between 1904 and 2005 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the outset of the twentieth century, Antarctica was scarcely explored or understood. Penetrating the pack ice in the purpose-built Discovery, the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-4) established a base in McMurdo Sound, enabling scientists and sledging parties to significantly push back the boundaries of the unknown. Published in 1905, this acclaimed two-volume work by the naval officer and expedition leader Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) recounts the trials, errors and achievements of an undertaking which laid the foundations for future research and Scott's later journey to the South Pole. The work is greatly enhanced by many photographs as well as illustrations by the doctor, zoologist and artist Edward A. Wilson (1872-1912). Volume 1 traces the expedition's preparatory phases and the voyage from England to Antarctica via New Zealand. Scott discusses the location of winter quarters and the first polar winter. Chapters on sledging conclude the volume
