Re: “Scott of the Antarctic: Glorious Failure?

I hate to break it to you Kristoffer (or anyone who likes to say that the disaster was Scott's fault), but Huntford's allegations that Scott left no fixed orders for the dogs and only left verbal orders at the last minute has been debunked. In fact Scott left written orders for the dog-teams to come and meet the Polar Party: these were not followed by the men back at base, who only came out part of the way specified by Scott, and as a result four men died. Huntford made a massive mistake in his book. The evidence shows that Scott and his men could have been saved had his WRITTEN orders been followed correctly.
