    I wasn't sure about this one

    I thought it would be the self aggrandising thoughts of an Edwardian gentleman read by an impersonator.

    In truth this fascinating throughout. Here we have the views, as seen through the prism of time, of the Man who led the free world, at least for some of his story. Some of it - the invasion of Greece- reads to me a little as if it is a little self exculpatory, but the rest, let's say most of it, is just great.

    thank you for a wonderful listen. Sad to say I would never have had "the time" to sit down with this book

    Story
    (2003)

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    Jennie says: "Unbelievably riveting!"
    "real endurance"

    Great story, well read.

    If you listen to one non-fiction audio-book make it this one. Just how did those men do it?
