This is a dramatic true story of Antarctic tragedy and survival among the heroic group that was to lay supplies across the Great Ross Ice Shelf in preparation for the Endurance expedition. Launched by Shackleton (and led by Captain Aenaes Mackintosh), this courageous crew completed the longest sledge journey in polar history (199 days) and endured near-unimaginable deprivation. They accomplished most of their mission, laying the way for those who never came. All suffered; some died. Now Australian writer Lennard Bickel honors these forgotten heroes. Largely drawn from the author's interviews with surviving team member Dick Richards, this retelling underscores the capacity of ordinary men for endurance and noble action.

When Ernest Shackleton resolved to cross Antarctica in 1915 .

When Ernest Shackleton resolved to cross Antarctica in 1915, he knew the task would require two parties of men. Shackleton and his crew aimed to cross the continent - but were to meet with disaster when their ship, the Endurance, was frozen into the ice of the Weddell Se. However, like the men of the Endurance, this group also lost their ship, the Aurora - along with their supplies - when a ferocious polar gale ripped it from its moorings. But Mackintosh and his men, who knew that their failure would doom Shackleton's party to starvation, refused to give up.

If you are a Shackleton fan, then this book is sure to delight you. The epic of Endurance has been given the most publicity but this story is every bit as captivating. These men, who had the responsibility to place food and supply depots for Shackleton's intended journey across Antarctica, endured hardship beyond description. They were totally dedicated to their task and their devotion to Shackleton is heartwarming. It proves, once again, his leadership prevailed even though he was almost 2,000 miles away from them. The writer gives a good insight into each of the characters and, as you read, you will feel you are enduring the journey yourself. It is without a doubt, one of the greatest stories of survival and a tribute to the toughness of the human spirit to prevail.

I read "Shakletons Way" and "Endurance". They were both essential to get all of my questions answered about what happened to that party, however I remained uncomfortably curious about what happened to the Ross Sea Party because they were only alluded to. "Shakletons Forgotten Men" was awesome because it showed how what happened to the Ross Sea Party was as strenuous and heroic as the Endurance experience. It also portrayed the perfect contrast to great leadership by the aweful domino effect of what happens when people are under poor leadership (not hideous leadership, just typical). I learned some great things about myself and my motivations and my will from reading this book. The book also totally explains why it could only be written now and not decades ago. I was very satisfied with the answer and felt like I could trust the authors portrayl of the experience of the Ross Sea Party. I give it only 4 stars because the writer was a little hard to follow at times (I eventually put some things together later). It didn't interefere too much with the story though, which I highly reccomend!

This is the story of the less well known tragedy of the other ship involved in Shackleton's Antarctic expedition.
I could not put this book down, the stories of the men were so amazing, and even though just about everything that could have gone wrong did, these men struggled on, because they knew that Shackleton was counting on them, and they did not want to fail.
Hero is a word that could certainly apply here.

An excellent book on unbelievable Antarctic hardship.

Many people know the story of Shackleton's Endurance voyage, or they think they do. But the oft-told tale of the crew of the Endurance becoming trapped, and eventually lost, in the ice of the Weddell Sea, and the incredible story of survival that followed is only half the story. Shackleton's plan called for the Endurance to land his team on the shore of the Weddell, from where he intended to cross the Antarctic continent, via the South Pole, to the Ross Sea. In order to do this, he employed a second ship - the Aurora - and crew to land on the Ross Sea side of Antarctica, from where they would lay depots of food and fuel supplies for Shackleton's team to use as they completed the crossing. This book tells the story of that Aurora expedition.

Like the Endurance, the Aurora became trapped in the sea ice and drifted helplessly with the pack. Unlike the Endurance, however, the Aurora had already landed several men, but only a fraction of the food and supplies they would need both for themselves and for the supply depots. Having no knowledge of the fate of Endurance, the Aurora's Ross Sea Party assumed the lives of Shackleton's team depended on them, so they not only faced the challenge of their own survival, but the even more daunting task of trying to lay supplies for Shackleton as well. What follows is possibly the greatest story of endurance and survival in the history of exploration - yes, even greater than the well-known story of Shackleton's Endurance crew. It's unfortunate that this epic tale of perseverance remained untold for so many years, and even know remains relatively unknown. If you were moved by Alfred Lansing's "Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage," you simply must read this to complete the story.

The only reason I rate it four stars, rather than five, is that I preferred the writing style of Lansing to Bickel. Mr. Bickel occasionally jumps forward or backward in time to tell additional information about how a particular crew member came to be on the team or what happens to someone in later years. This style can be a bit confusing, and I occasionally found myself re-reading a few sentences or paragraphs to grasp that he was referring to something yet to come. It can also serve as a bit of a spoiler: when the author writes of a particular individual's thoughts or actions many years after this expedition, if removes any suspense as to whether or not that individual survived. Regardless, the story is very much worth reading, even if I take issue with the writing style.

I had read of Scott and Amundson but, I confess, I was not well-versed on Shackleton. I enjoyed this account of his other crew, the ones who were there to set up supply bases for the second half of his journey accross Antarctica. This book was based on the personal accounts of the participants, some recently discovered. It is a good overview of the Shacklton quest and it leaves the reader with a chill and an appreciation of the sacrifices these men suffered through. It seems incomprehensible that some of these men survived at all. Their ship disappeared in a storm leaving them with less than adequate provisions and no contact with the outside world. I was surprized that Scott's shelters, built some years earlier, were still is satisfactory condition. I discovered that it is best not to be in the same room where seal blubber is being fried. I was impressed with the story of these men's determination to get the job done even though they surely knew that their names were not going to go down in history. Of course, the reader is struck with the irony of knowing that their work was all to support a journey that would never take place. I thought this story was well-told with imagery that gave us a sense of the privations of the men.
