Nilsen (1881-1940) was one of 20 members of Roald Amundsen’s South Pole Expedition (1910-12). He was the captain of the Fram, dropping the land party off and then embarking on the South Atlantic scientific voyage before again picking up Amundsen and his men.

This is one of 15 diaries (8 volumes) written by members of the expedition. Only Amundsen’s diary has been translated into English. I have been hoping for an English translation since 2011 but it is unlikely to occur. An important addition to the literature of this historic expedition. In Norwegian, no English translation.
