Sir Ernest Shackleton, who lived in Eastbourne, became a legend on four epic voyages of discovery to the Antarctic a century ago, including the famous Endurance expedition. Polar historian Michael Smith recalls the compelling story of a complex and charismatic man who touched greatness on the ice but struggled to come to terms with home life. Shackleton was an inspirational figure who lived life “like a mighty rushing wind” but was happiest in the icy wilderness where he could leave behind his messy personal life.
