Description
Information
As the war clouds darkened over Europe in 1914, a party led by veteran explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton set out to make the first crossing of the entire Antarctic continent via the Pole. But their initial optimism was short-lived as the ice floes closed around their ship, "Endurance", gradually crushing her to death and marooning twenty-eight men on the polar ice.

Alone in the world's most unforgiving environment, Shackleton and his team began a brutal quest for survival. And as the story of their journey across treacherous seas and a wilderness of glaciers and snow-fields unfolds, the scale of their courage and heroism becomes movingly clear.
