A part of Danish maritime history has been preserved by historian Bjarne Rasmussen who has written and edited e-books by retired seamen who sailed with Danish merchant ships in the Arctic/Antarctic waters during the period 1950 - 2000. 

These voyages involved ice-filled and sometimes unsurveyed waters. The books, most written in Danish, were collated before it was “too late.” The number of seafarers left from that era is dwindling. The e-books are available free here.
