(History repeats itself because human nature is static)
Here's a book for you--Shackleton's Forgotten Men: The Untold Tradegy of the Endurance Epic by Lennard Bickel. It's an excellent account of Shackleton's "support staff" charged with setting up the food caches for Shackleton to use during his trek across the continent. It's amazing and heartbreaking at the same time.
