    This is a superb biography of Churchill It is one long volume, so it covers most aspects of his long interesting life, but is not as thorough as some of the specialized bios or the multiple volume bios such as by Gilbert or Manchester Jenkins is a longtime parliamentary insider, so the focus of the volume is political The author is well acquainted with and makes good use of rich documentary sources to great effect and without being too tedious Churchill had an amazing life and was the early This is a superb biography of Churchill It is one long volume, so it covers most aspects of his long interesting life, but is not as thorough as some of the specialized bios or the multiple volume bios such as by Gilbert or Manchester Jenkins is a longtime parliamentary insider, so the focus of the volume is political The author is well acquainted with and makes good use of rich documentary sources to great effect and without being too tedious Churchill had an amazing life and was the early version of Where s Waldo for critical world events He began his military career in NW India and Afghanistan, then moved to the Sudan, where he took part in the expedition to avenge Gordon, and in doing so rode in the last British Calvary charge He then went to the Boer War as a correspondent and became a media star after being captured and then escaping As first Lord of the Admiralty, he led the British Navy in changing over to oil power and thus making the Middle East ...
