Published by Croom Helm Publishers, UK US & Australia, 1986, 1st English Language Edition, D/w, Fine.   Month-by-month account of the year-long Joint Services Expedition to the Antarctic’s Brabant Island in 1983, a place so wild and inhospitable that only five brief landings had been made since its discovery nearly a century earlier.  The author and leader of the Expedition, Commander Chris Furse, tells the story of their survival in ‘the harshest of conditions’, living in tents and snowholes and becoming the first expedition to endure an Antarctic winter without a base hut.  The large-format book includes over 150 spectacular photographs which provide a visually stunning accompaniment to the text.
