9781453625071: Josiah Camberwell: A Novel of Joseph Chamberlain

How would you describe a novel about a man who had a political career as that of Josiah Camberwell? It would be the story of the most important Victorian politician who never became British Prime Minister. As a young man Josiah was in a hurry to make his fortune. By the time he was forty he had. He turned to politics becoming a successful local Mayor. After a successful local career he was elected to the Parliament at Westminster where he rose like a rocket in the Liberal Party. After a quarrel with the most esteemed of all Victorian Prime Ministers he was consigned to the political wilderness. Soon he crossed the aisle and joined a Tory cabinet in the position as the head of the mighty British Empire. From this position Josiah Camberwell became the central figure in Queen Victoria's last and most Calamitous colonial war - the Anglo-Boer War. For his part in fomenting and conducting this war, by war's end Josiah was a broken, forgotten, and despised man incapacitated by a stroke.
