Russell vividly brings to life the military career of the vigorous young officer of hussars who later became the greatest Briton of the twentieth century. From Sandhurst to the mountainous North-West Frontier of India, to the charge of the 21st Lancers at Omdurman, from the South African veldt to the deadly trench warfare of the Great War, the author -- whom Sir Martin Gilbert calls 'a keen portraitist' -- tells the gripping story of Churchill's army life with careful attention to historical detail and all the drama that the real life adventures of his subject deserve"--Jacket."@en ;
