about this item

In 1943, Churchill’s War Cabinet met to discuss the opening of a new front. Its battles would be fought amidst the glaciers of the Antarctic. Intended to safeguard the Falkland Islands from Japanese invasion and to deny German U-boats, the expedition also sought to re-assert British territorial rights in the face of Argentine provocation. Indeed, the British bases secretly established in 1944 would also go on to play a vital part in a global "conflict:" the Cold War. Operation Tabarin tells for the first time the story of one of the most curious episodes in what Ernest Shackleton called "the white warfare of the south."
