Join Anne Strathie as she explores the extraordinary lives of men at war on land and sea. Those who served on the Terra Nova Expedition to Antarctica returned home in 1913. By 1919, these ‘Antarctics’ had fought across Europe, serving on horseback, in trenches, on ships, in armoured cars and flimsy aircraft; and their brothers in- arms included a prime minister’s son, an Australian composer-pianist, a New Zealand champion swimmer and poet Rupert Brooke. As in Antarctica, life at war was challenging and dangerous; as on the ice, not all survived.
