Winston Churchill was an iconic leader. But most of us imagine him as he was best known: a seasoned leader deep into his life and at the height of his powers.
Here Simon Read (The Case That Foiled Fabian, Dark City, War of Words) looks closely at a much earlier Churchill: the young man military man and reporter between 1895 and 1900. In Winston Churchill Reporting: Adventures of a Young War Correspondent (Da Capo) we journey with the resolute and ambitious young man as he reports from the field from the Cuban jungles to India’s North-West frontier and the South African veld.
With material from personal letters as well as his reports from the front, Winston Churchill Reporting is a visit with a future leader during his formative years. It’s an extraordinary, eye-opening book. ◊
