An unsurpassed record in words and pictures, this book chronicles ninety of the most momentous years of British and world history through the remarkable life of Winston Churchill. From his childhood and early military career in India and with Kitchener in the Sudan, to his hair-raising escape from the Boers in 1899; from his dramatic role in the early phases of World War I as First Lord of the Admiralty, to his active service at the front in 1916; through his outstanding leadership of the nation during World War II and his career in politics, this is a fascinating record of the greatest Englishman of his time. This book was published in the year of Churchill's death.
