    Die Kindle Edition ist gratis, von daher ist jede Kritik relativ Das Preis Leistungs Verh ltnis stimmt jedenfalls.Der Expeditionsbericht ist gut zu lesen und durchaus spannend Scan Fehler habe ich keine gefunden.Aber einige Verbesserungsvorschl ge h tte ich dann doch an eine Stelle wird im Text auf eine Skizze mit der Lage des Schiffs im Packeis verwiesen Diese Skizze fehlt Kartenmaterial fehlt v llig, ebenso die immer wieder erw hnten Fotos von der Expedition am Ende gibt es mehrere Seiten Index, die abe

    i recall a radio interview with andrea barrett from a while back it went something like other explorers may make you famous shackelton will get you home.told in a very victorian matter of fact way, with a slight self effacing humor, shackelton was no great author but he and his men were part of the intelligent, sensitive generation of young men destroyed during the great war they d even offered to give up their mission and serve in the impending conflict, but churchill told them to go ahead with their efforts.mixed with the m

    Although there have been a number of new books and reprints recently focusing on the Endurance expedition, this is the one book everyone should read, Sir Ernest Shackleton s own story of the tragedy he turned into a triumph Shackleton fully covers the expedition from its inception, through the loss of the Endurance, the stranding of the men on desolate Elephant Island, the majestic small boat journey in search of rescue to South Georgia, the many attempts to evacuate the men from Elephant Island, and the little known story of the Ro

    This is a well known survival story of mind over matter and human perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity Also one of the classic examples of leadership If you don t know the story of the endurance expedition then I d urge you to do a bit of research If you already know it as I and probably most other readers did I d still recommend this book as it s interesting to read Shackletons own account What strikes me is the complete lack of bravado or any sense of exaggeration in anything he describes, which is quite extraordinary consi

    Long ago I read a full biography of Sir Ernest Shackleton and it has always remained in my memory, with the chapters devoted to the 1914 17 expedition being the undoubted highlight The reality of the entire expedition, with many excerpts from the diaries of the various participants, put virtually all adventure novels to shame Here, by virtue of those who have enabled the publication of this ebook thank you , the first hand account of Ernest Shackleton can be read A great story told by one of the greats of polar exploration Excellent.

    I have seen the Channel 4 film and have a large coffee table book about Shackleton, but reading this in his own words, is a different experience.It is almost impossible to imagine the hardships experienced by these men, in appalling weather conditions of almost non stop blizzards and temperatures down to 50 degrees F below freezing Not for weeks, or months, but for years Totally cut off from the outside world, no means of communicating with each other It makes man s greatest achievement the moon landings almost seem like a walk in the park And there is

    I downloaded this randomly for free and I have to say it is the best free Kindle download I have chosen yet I remain glad I downloaded it and would actually pay full price to read a book like this.It s so detailed and yet covers the sweeping adventure of Shackleton and his team exploring the Antarctic in the early twentieth century It s in diary format for the most part, with gaps filled in here and there The story of the men involved as well as the landscape itself and the wildlife it s compelling I really enjoyed it, although certain parts did upset me a lit

    Though with no human enemy, this is a story reminiscent of Xenophon s Anabasis , even to the extent that the Sea is the goal, and that of a leader looking after and eventually delivering his men.The detail of the diary of the escape off the ice to Elephant Island and thence to South Georgia is astounding and provocative, yet delivered almost deadpan, without ostentation What now, what should be next and how to achieve it.The book also relates the story of the Ross Sea party, where sadly there were casualties, not to be discovered until later.I had been expecting some

    if you thought you were a hard man read this book, THEY were hard men They never complained except that 20 F was too warm Hard to credit this happened not quite a century ago Rubbish equipment, rubbish food, no contact with the outside world for months at a time A walk over South Georgia, over the glaciers at 4000 feet in rotten boots and torn clothing Barely believable After reading this you will think twice about complaining about anything ever again Maps, data and sketches not included in this ebook though which is a shame.

    Whilst reading the book on Kindle, I decided to bookmark the co ordinates given by Shackleton in the book and then look them up on Google Earth It worked and I was able to see Shackleton s locations as described by him Where no co ordinates were given, I simply put the name of various islands mentioned by Shackleton and Google Earth took me there.I would advise that once you put the co ordinates into Google Earth and the search is completed, you zoom out so that you can see land mass and use them as a reference point Obviously, with Shackleton and his men being on ice floes, this

    Wow, just finished it.Firstly to clear up the 1 reviews Correct, there are no photos, I was disappointed with the lack of photos at first but I was totally captivated so it gets 5 It s a free book If you want photos, cough up and pay for it, or you can search Shackleton s Antarctic Expedition on the internet and find dozens of maps and photos like what I did This book is excellently written, what he and the rest of the team went through, with what we now deem as primitive equipment, simply beggars belief Nobody died on his watch Endurance He is factual in his account and modest with his
