The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition  Caroline Alexander, Frank Hurley




In August 1914, just before the outbreak of the First World War, the explorer Ernest Shackleton and his crew sailed for the South Atlantic in pursuit of being  the first to cross, on  foot,  the Antarctic continent. Through the freezing Weddell Sea, they came within eighty-five miles of their destination when their ship, Endurance, became trapped in the ice pack. The ship was crushed, it's crew stranded on the floes. Their ordeal would last for twenty months, and is one of history's greatest exploration adventures.
