They bring in frozen air in buckets by simply scooping it from the ground. Once they are inside the room, they allow it to melt and boil, thus providing the necessary breathable gas.

But how do they regulate air pressure in such conditions? Plus the snow would not be white, but blue. Nevertheless, I liked the story. And I liked the subtle antiwar themes. Rather, it is about exploring the nature of Man by putting him into strange environments and then seeing how he reacts. To those who complain about scientific inaccuracies - give me a break. Things from the past have to be judged versus their own time period, not today. An enjoyable read!
