Resumen:
In retrospect, it seems difficult to imagine the stentorian figure of Sir Winston Churchill ever living in the shadow of his famous father, Lord Randolph Churchill.

schema:description"The young Churchill set off to Cuba to make his mark. In this campaign and those that followed in India, the Sudan and South Africa, he developed the spare and deliberately controversial style that was to make him both a household name and a journalist respected and feared in parliamentary circles.
