Summary

Discover the remarkable life of Ernest Shackleton.... 

Ernest Shackleton was not just a great explorer - he was also a great commander. When the chips were down, he could always be depended upon to put others ahead of himself. Shackleton knew how to push the limits until he was able to exceed well above even the most generous of expectations that had been laid out for him. Yet time and time again, he also proved to be a compassionate leader who made sure that he never left a single man behind on his expeditions. 

This compassionate concern for those under his charge was brilliantly evidenced in his famous journey to the Antarctic on the ship prophetically named the Endurance. The mission’s main objective would prove to be a failure, but what Shackleton achieved in terms of common humanity was stunning all the same.
