Captain Scott – Ranulph Fiennes

Disliking Ranulph Fiennes’s writing style, I gave up at the point Scott’s first expedition to the South Pole (the Discovery Expedition) ended in 1904.

Perhaps the pointedly pro-Scott style was necessary to counteract / correct the negative portrayals of Scott published in the 1980s and 1990s; but it’s the “I know better” ¬†interjections that irritate the most, just as they did in Jim Perrin’s Shipton and Tilman.
