Overview

This book, published in 1898, recounts an expedition by a British field force to subdue insurrection in a breakaway Indian province.

Churchill was a young cavalry officer at that time, temporarily accredited as a war correspondent, largely through the efforts of his mother. The book, Churchill's first, gives promise of the author, war leader and statesman who was to emerge. At a young age he already sparkles with wit, drive, energy and vision. The Churchillian prose, in his beautiful sonorities, is there too.

On its release Churchill himself said, "The publication of this book will certainly be the most noteworthy act of my life. By its reputation I shall measure the chances of my possible success in the world."

Meet the Author

Churchill's fictional output included one novel and a short story, but his main output comprised non-fiction. After he was elected as an MP, over 130 of his speeches or parliamentary answers were also published in pamphlets or booklets; many were subsequently published in collected editions. Churchill received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 "for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values".
