This title tells the tragic story of Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his British team who in November 1911 began a trek across the snows of Antarctica, striving to be the first to reach the South Pole. After marching and skiing more than 900 miles, the men reached the Pole in January 1912, only to suffer the terrible realization that a group of five Norwegians had been there a month earlier. Scott and his four companions died on the return journey. Whether they were courageous heroes or tragic incompetents has been debated ever since.
