Often written in the forefront of action, these wartime despatches of Winston Churchill display the succinct and often humorous style that made him a household name and a journalist respected in parliamentary circles. The reports cover Cuba (1895), the North-West Frontier of India (1897), the Sudan (1898) and South Africa (1899-1900). Churchill's stinging attacks on the Cabinet, the Indian Government and the commanders he served under, ended his chances of a prestigious staff appointment. His accounts of the Boer War were highly controversial at the time and include the story of capture by and escape from the Boers.
