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. Yet the desire to be more than just 'Randolph's boy', allied to a relentless urge to be in the thick of things, meant that it was a political career to be forged far from dingy town halls and the elegant cocktail parties of the rich and powerful. Thus, with little writing or military experience to his name, 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. His stinging attacks on the Indian Government, the Cabinet and the commanders he served under ended any chance of a military career--but it was public attention and not a prestigious staff appointment that he sought. While Churchill relished the hazards of the front line, the excitement of battle was tempered by a sombre realisation of the futility of war. In the same way, his passionate belief in Queen and Empire did not prevent him from admiring a worthy enemy, and his reports are remarkable for their objectivity at a time when jingoistic propaganda was the norm. Frederick Woods has assembled a set of despatches that rank among the best. Writings of this master of the English language. Complemented by an excellent introduction and informative notes throughout, they are at once an enthralling read and an open window into the world of an embattled empire
Artillery of words : the writings of Sir Winston Churchill by Fred Woods( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 124 libraries worldwide
During his long lifetime, Sir Winston Churchill wrote fifty books and over 800 feature articles. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953. Remarkably, until now no serious study has been made of this voluminous and prestigious output. Frederick Woods, an internationally acknowledged expert in the field of Churchillian writings, here presents the first full-length appraisal, not only as a matter of literary criticism, but also considering the writings in the context of Churchill's public life. Almost all Churchill's publications, argues Mr Woods, were weapons written deliberately to win a battle, whether that battle was over the future of India, the fate of the freedom-loving world, the rehabilitation of renowned ancestors, or his own fluctuating reputation. In every case Churchill strove mightily to win, and often presented his case with less than the objectivity of one popularly considered to be a major historian. Artillery of Words is not only an illuminating and often witty analysis of Churchill's writings; it is also an important and revealing contribution to Churchillian studies in general. Mr Woods's Bibliography of the Works of Sir Winston Churchill, first published in 1963, has been described by Churchill's official biographer, Martin Gilbert, as revealing 'a mastery both of research and presentation'. This new book possesses the same qualities
