Winston Churchill is remembered by most of us as the breathtakingly articulate British prime minister who inspired his nation to victory in World War II. Many who admire his "blood, toil, tears, and sweat" eloquence, however, possess only scant knowledge of Churchill's difficult passage in the decades. Few, for example, know that the future hero of the world was brought down in disgrace after the 1915 Battle of Gallipoli. Nor do many readers know much about the personal daring of a man who came under fire dozens of times during his military career. Michael Shelden's Young Titan recaptures the glory and gloom of Churchill's early years, giving us a new appreciation of one of the giants of his age.
