5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book that shows, in their own words, the differences between Amundsen's couragous success & Scott's inept failure.

Reviewed in Italy 🇮🇹 on February 22, 2017
Il libro ha due gravi errori di stampa. Mancano le prime due mappe. Map 1 del viaggio di Scott per il polo sud. Map 2 del viaggio di Amundsen per il polo sud. Quindi proprio le mappe dei viaggi che il libro mette a confronto. Il venditore mi ha mandato una seconda copia del libro, ma anch'essa presenta lo stesso errore di stampa.
