More Information
Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was born on 30 September 1874 at Blenheim Palace, he was schooled at Harrow before entering Sandhurst Military College in 1893 and eventually saw active service in India. Before leaving for India he arranged to write reports for a newspaper which were later turned into his first book. He soon became famous having resigned his commission to be a war journalist and writer only to be captured by the Boers, in typical Churchill style he escaped and rejoined the army. He was openly ambitious and in 1900 was elected to parliament, he soon caused a political sensation by leaving the Tories and joining the Liberals where he was soon promoted. His political career is more than well documented and well beyond the scope of this page. The writing continued including highly acclaimed historical and biographical works. Winston Churchill is still today a highly regarded and collectable author and whilst later works are not difficult to find his early first editions are considered rare books
