One of the classic volumes of autobiography, "My Early Life" is a lively and colourful account of a young man's quest for action, adventure and danger. Churchill's schooldays are undistinguished, but he is admitted to Sandhurst and embarks on a career as a soldier and a war correspondent, seeing action in Cuba, in India, in the Sudan where he took part in the battle of Omdurman, of which he gives us a stirring account and finally in South Africa. Taken prisoner by the Boers, Churchill makes a daring escape. Back home he embarks on the political career that is to make him one of Britain's most distinguished parliamentarians. First published in 1930, when Churchill's most testing time still lay ahead of him, "My Early Life" is memorable both as an adventure-story and as an account of the events and influences that helped to shape the career of a great Englishman."
