The Coldest March: Scott's Fatal Antarctic Expedition

This is a book written by a senior scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Colorado. It gives a scientist view into reasons why Scott's return journey from the pole resulted in his death and of his companions. Scott is shown not to be the incompetent meddler as described in some other books, he was the victim of bad luck and some questionable decision making. The book is a scientist review of these decisions and makes for an interesting study. Published by Yale in 2001.
