Indeed, the lead article was written by Sebastian Dobson.

A volume that may well complement this read was recently published by Sebastian Dobson & Sven Saaler, Under Eagle Eyes. Written in English, German and Japanese it presents an engaing and fascinating account of the prioritisation of photography on this expedition and the historical frame within which events transpired.
