New. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall 1848840888 'I am just going outside and may be some time. ' With these words, on 17 March 1912, Captain Oates walked out to his death in an Antarctic blizzard and won a place for himself in history as 'a very gallant gentleman'. His reputation for courage and endurance as one of the members of Scott s doomed expedition to the South Pole is as powerful today as it was almost a century ago. Yet, as Sue Limb and Patrick Cordingley reveal in this new edition of their classic biography of the man, there is much more to Captain Oates s life than his final famous act of self-sacrifice. Their work is, as Sir Ranulph Fiennes noted, a fascinating character study of a quintessential British hero.
