With Winston Churchill at the Front

With Winston Churchill at the Front

When this book was first published in 1924, Winston Churchill already had a reputation as a soldier, statesman and adventurer. This reprint brings him to a new generation of military enthusiasts, who may not know the extent of his role in WWI and his service in the front line of the Ypres Salient in 1916. Written by an officer who served with him in the trenches, using contemporary accounts, this work tells how the man operated and reacted to situations. The opinions of those who served with him have allowed a portrait to be built up and reveals him to be a very good officer. Churchill commanded the 6th Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers and experienced hard fighting in terrible conditions. This edition has been updated to allow visitors to walk the ground where he served and is a must for understanding Churchill’s wider life.
