I really enjoyed this biography of Magellan although the recent biography by Laurence Bergreen is better Zweig who was apparently a very popular writer in the 1930s has a gift for sweeping you up in the glory and occasional folly of Magellan s great voyage He fought mutiny storms seemingly impossible navigational difficulties hunger despair locals who didn t like being pushed around by Europeans and the daunting and unanticipated immensity of the Pacific Ocean itself but the mission despite beginning with 250 men and five ships and ending with one ship and 18 men was perhaps the greatest feat of Earth s exploration ever accomplished And Zweig does a good job of making this great story excitingI did not actually read this edition of this book I listened to a French language audiobook version on Audible but I couldn t find it on Goodreads The reader of the audiobook was fantastic and spoke at a pace and with a clarity that made it easy for this non native French speaker to understand

As had happened to me several times before I found that to tell the story to others would be the best way of explaining the inexplicable to myselfFor those like myself who don t really remember which explorer found and did what Magellan was the first to circumnavigate the world He was the first European maybe person who knows to find the shortcut to India Asia and all those places where spices and things like that could be found which Europeans were going crazy for back in the 15th century For his troubles he had the passage he discovered posthumously named after him and since people soon found that his shortcut wasn t a practical in fact it was pretty dangerous to sail through no one really ever used what he discovered instead it was easier to go Fitzcarraldo style across Panama I actually have no idea if they had to go through the trouble depicted in the Herzog movieWhile the story of Magellan is interesting in itself I was interested in the background given by Zweig in his introduction about how he came to write the book It was something I could relate to The book came about because of what we might call today a first world problem Zweig had been crossing the Atlantic in the height of technological comfort available at the time and he was bored and annoyed by how long the journey was taking When he started to think about how easy he had it compared to the early conuistadors setting sail into the unknown and having to deal with even longer journeys along with things like storms and starvation he felt a little ashamed From his shame came this book While I said I could relate it s just in relating to being annoyed at how long and boring travel can be I don t feel any shame at my annoyance though I just sometimes think about how much I would hate travel if I had lived in the past when it was even difficult than it is nowIt s not that the book came out of shame that is interesting to me but that Zweig gives a very clear picture of what drove him to be interested in the topic and then he wrote a biography that reads as well researched but in reality is most likely a fanciful picture It s really easy to not see this book as probably as much a work of Zweig s imagination as a true historical document the book is bookended with reminders about this but it is probably easy to overlook them For in recounting this odyssey as faithfully as I could after the examination of all the documents available I have been animated throughout by the strange feeling that I must be painting a fanciful picture must be relating one of the great wish dreams one of the hallowed fairy tales of mankind Yet what can be better than a truth that seems utterly improbable There is always something inconceivable about man s supreme deeds for the simple reason that they greatly transcend average human powers but it is by performing the incredible that man regains faith in his own selfUnless I m completely misguided by what I read almost all of the details in this book about Magellan are made up of assumptions about the thoughts and character of person who there is little actual information about And really the closest thing to a first hand account of the voyage is from one person on the ship who had kept a diary There are two problems with the diary though One it s written by someone who basically worships Magellan so the reader has to wonder about the descriptions given Especially when it comes down to the conflicts between the Portuguese Magellan and the Spanish captains who were in charge of the other four ships on the voyage But importantly and this isn t disclosed until almost the end of the book The diary was lost or most likely destroyed The diary that serves as a historical record was what got re written from memory in a couple of weeks after the survivors of the journey returned to SpainWhat is true about the voyage is that just about everyone died Out of five ships only one returned and it was barely manned with sailors who had been starving for the last months of the voyage The captain of the ship that returned was part of the group of Spaniards who tried to mutiny against Magellan Ok I lied a little one other ship returned a year earlier but that was a ship that had deserted when the prospects of finding the passage to the Pacific Ocean seemed hopeless These captain and sailors of this ship described Magellan as a deranged tyrant and well they had to because abandoning the mission and going against whom King Charles had put in command of the voyage was the same as treason So if history is written by the winners or survivors then most of the first hand information anyone had was from people whose continuing survival was based on Magellan being a traitor or incompetentI m not sure why I find this aspect of the story almost interesting than the feats and hardships that the crew endured on the voyage But whatever it doesn t matter if all the details are accurate or if the psychology Zweig has attributed to Magellan is true or merely the work of his imagination in creating the type of person who could accomplish something that was so improbable at the time the book is still very very good and maybe it will make me think twice about being annoyed about the lack of legroom the next time I travel someplace
