A most interesting account of the person generally regarded as the least popular on Shackleton’s historic 1914-16 Endurance expedition. Orde Lees was the motor expert and in charge of stores on board ship. The diary entries begin here with the Endurance in the pack ice and finish with the last day on Elephant Island. Orde Lees predicted a shortage of food for those who were left on the Island and it is believed he would have been the first victim of cannibalism. This is the first publication of his detailed journal.
