Gjertsen (1885-1958) was one of 20 members of Roald Amundsen’s South Pole Expedition (1910-12). He was a member of the sea party, serving as second mate, and participated in the South Atlantic scientific voyage while Amundsen and the other eight members of the land party wintered over on the continent. He would later go on additional Arctic and Antarctic expeditions culminating as second-in-command of Admiral Byrd’s 1933-35 Antarctic expedition.

This is one of 15 diaries (8 volumes) written by members of the expedition. Only Amundsen’s diary has been translated into English. I have been hoping for an English translation since 2011 but it is unlikely to occur. An important addition to the literature of this historic expedition. In Norwegian, no English translation.
