Abstract:

In this biography of a dashing, brash young Churchill, Celia Sandys reconstructs her grandfather's adventures as a correspondent and combatant during nine months of the Anglo-Boer War at the end of the last century-events that took him from the bivouacs and battle sites of Transvaal to his incarceration as a prisoner of war in Pretoria and ultimately to a bold escape across the border into Mozambique. Using both British and South African sources of testimony, which alternately reveal Winston as a courageous ally or foolhardy foe, Sandys recounts the exploits of a Churchill whom history has largely forgotten. --From publisher's description.
