The disaster left Shackleton and his men alone at the frozen South Pole, fighting for their lives.
Their survival and escape is the most famous adventure in history.
Shackleton is an enthralling new account of the adventurer, his life and his incredible leadership under the most extreme of circumstances. Written by polar adventurer and 'the world's greatest living explorer' Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who brings his own unique insights to bear on the expedition, Shackleton is both re-appraisal and a valediction, separating the man from the myth he has become.

ReviewsPraise for Ranulph Fiennes' Captain Scott * - *
Sir Ranulph Fiennes has done Captain Scott's memory some service...he has certainly written a more dispassionate and balanced account than Huntford ever set out to do. -- Simon Courtauld * Spectator *
A valuable corrective to the trend of Scott debunking...One by one, and with the commendable attention to detail, Fiennes explodes the accumulated myths. * Sunday Telegraph *
Fiennes' own experiences certainly allow him to write vividly and with empathy of the hell that the men went through. * The Sunday Times *
Stirring...no one is better placed than Fiennes to understand what Scott may have experienced or to appreciate the enormity of his achievement. * Daily Mail *
Full of awe-inspiring details of hardship, resolve and weather that defies belief, told by someone of unique authority. No one is more tailor-made to tell [this] story than Sir Ranulph Fiennes * Newsday *
