О книге «Антарктическая одиссея 1985»
The British first laid claim to the island in 1775, with the arrival of renowned explorer, Captain James Cook.
Britain retained control over South Georgia for decades to come, with the island used as a base for both whaling and scientific expeditions throughout the 1800s.
In 1908, both the South Sandwich and South Georgia islands were formally annexed by Great Britain, but their identity once again came under fire after Argentina made a territorial claim in 1927.
This dispute came to a head when Argentina attempted to annex South Georgia as a dependency of the Falkland Islands in 1982.
Perhaps once of the most momentous points in South Georgia's young history is the Battle of Grytviken, part of Argentina's campaign to annex the Falklands in 1982.
On his third Antarctic voyage in 1915, Shackleton and his crew had to abandon their ship, the Endurance, after it became trapped in ice.
After making their way to Elephant Island, Shackleton and five crew members set out in a small boat to find help.
