This book tells, for the first time, the story of the man responsible for that other, less celebrated but equally remarkable odyssey: Joseph Russell Stenhouse. In May 2015 the Aurora was secured to anchors at Cape Evans when a major storm came up and broke the lines, locking the ship in the pack-ice which slowing drifted North towards New Zealand. He was also recruited for special operations in the Arctic during the First World War, became involved in the Allied intervention in Revolutionary Russia, and was later appointed to command Captain Scott's Discovery. Much has been written on Antarctic explorer, Ernest Shackleton. On the other side of the continent Sir Shackleton's Endurance was also trapped in the pack-ice at the same time. The gripping story of J.

This was the major extent on my knowledge until I read Ice Captain. Torn from her moorings and driven out to sea by a ferocious gale, she, too, became trapped in pack-ice which, for ten months, sawed relentlessly at her hull, lifting the 600-ton ship from the water like a toy and straining her timbers to breaking point. In Ice Captain Stephen Haddelsey tells this thrilling story for the first time. In that incredible story it is generally acknowledged that one of the most dramatic episodes is the epic small-boat voyage from Elephant Island to South Georgia.
