Wideranging, all the expeditions of that time, and a historic glance back to Capt Cook and many others, as well as clear summaries of geological and oceanographic aspects. Who knew that the japanese were there under n unsung hero Shires. ( )

Mr Turney leads the reader through the various expeditions that converged on Antarctica during the year 1912 and they are a wide ranging group of individuals with a wide ranging set of results. My biggest complaint is that the prose never manages to be more than mildly interesting. Still, if you want an in-depth look at this year in Antarctica, the author does a good job of pulling all those accounts together. ( )
