Beyond the Barrier: The Story of Byrd's First Expedition to Antarctica

Front Cover
Naval Inst Press, 1990 - Biography & Autobiography - 354 pages
0 Reviews
Without discrediting the expedition's success or Admiral Richard Byrd's leadership, this book makes clear for the first time that the admiral was not the saintly hero he and the press depicted. A provocative reassessment of an American hero, but a scrupulously objective book that makes a major contribution to history. Photographs.
