Churchill is another historical leader I find fascinating. What I loved about this book, is that it describes a period in young Churchill’s life rather than his role during World War II. The story is new to me and provided me with additional insight into the life strategy to which Churchill ascribed. He had a plan and always believed he was destined for greatness. In this book, we learn how he planned early on to achieve that goal using heroic action on the field of battle.
Surprisingly, his capture and escape from a prison camp in Africa while employed as a military correspondent and not as a soldier ended-up being his ticket to advancement in the political arena.
This is an exciting story which is well-written and researched. It further cemented my admiration of Churchill and my belief in his courageous nature and tenacious drive to accomplish his goals.
