In the vein of Robert Harris' Pompeii, which sold over 700,000 copies, Robert Ryan tells the story of the last expedition of 'Scott of the Antarctic'.

Robert Ryan brings one of the greatest epic journeys of all time to life in this captivating story of Captain Scott's last Antarctic expedition.

January 18, 1912: Captain Robert Falcon Scott s expedition reaches the South Pole. Just a few weeks later, trapped in one of the worst blizzards Antarctica has ever known, Scott and his four companions perish in subzero temperatures. How did the icy conditions overwhelm Scott, Captain Oates and their party on the fateful return journey?

The story of Scott and Oates, their incredible journey and their tragic final days, combines ambition, national pride and the kind of bravery and dignity most men can only dream of.
