Details

The Trans-Antarctic Expedition was a remarkable collaboration between Commonwealth nations to undertake the first overland crossing of the continent (during which Edmund Hillary led only the third group to reach the South Pole). Using maps, diagrams and photos from private collections, the Royal Geographical Society and the Auckland War Memorial Museum, this book reconstructs the full story of the planning, execution and mechanical complexity of the dangerous journey.
