Abstract

Two Years Below the Horn is the only full, contemporary account of Operation Tabarin, the only Antarctic expedition to be launched by a combatant nation during the Second World War. Although publicised as an exercise designed to prevent German U-boats and surface raiders from using Antarctic and sub-Antarctica harbours, its real purpose was to re-establish British sovereignty in the face of Argentine incursions. This account, by the expedition's commander, was written shortly after the expedition returned to the UK. This will be its first publication.
