New book, 480 pages, slight shelf wear to cover. As a young man Winston Churchill set out to become a hero, to make a name for himself in the public eye as a soldier and so make possible a life of politics and statesmanship. This is the first full-length, fully-researched biography of Churchill's colourful military career. Using an unrivalled range of sources and with previously unpublished photographs, and detailed maps by Sir Martin Gilbert, it brings to life Churchill's motives, abilities, experiences, successes and failures, and his unswerving sense of destiny as an officer in the British Army. The result is a story to echo the man himself - rich in action, courage, charismatic self belief, patriotism and humour.
