Publisher Description

One of the classic volumes of autobiography, My Early Life is a lively and colourful account of a young man's quest for action, adventure and danger. Churchill's schooldays are undistinguished, but he is admitted to Sandhurst and embarks on a career as a soldier and a war correspondent, seeing action in Cuba, in India, in the Sudan - where he took part in the battle of Omdurman, of which he gives us a stirring account - and finally in South Africa.

Taken prisoner by the Boers, Churchill makes a daring escape. Back home he embarks on the political career that is to make him one of Britain's most distinguished parliamentarians.

First published in 1930, when Churchill's most testing time still lay ahead of him, My Early Life is memorable both as an adventure-story and as an account of the events and influences that helped to shape the career of a great Englishman.

Turly great book

The book is great and would dare to said timeless. Its allows a reader to see how this man who played a part in shaping the world as we know it today started. People born after world war 2 may just know him as a name in history and a picture of him durning the war. You get to hear and understand this man thur his own words so may years after he is gone. As a men reading this book I find that may of the feelings and wants Churchill had I share today. I have read it twice and will a third time in a few years and look forward to how it effects me than.
