    why was he? This man led with equality, calmness and caring. In addition, Shackleton was a valiant man who led a troop of gradually dying men through the perilous Antarctic; arguably the most treacherous location on this planet, to safety after their barquentine was crushed by the pack ice in the Weddell Sea. All together, the expedition was like playing a game of Russian roulette, extremely dangerous. In 1914-1916 when they paraded across the hundreds of miles of pack ice that laid between them and
