Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (1874 - 1965) was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a non-academic historian, a writer (as Winston S. Churchill) and an artist. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 for his overall, lifetime body of work. In 1963, he was the first of only eight people to be made an honorary citizen of the United States. In addition to his careers of soldier and politician, he was a prolific writer under the pen name "Winston S. Churchill". After being commissioned into the 4th Queen's Own Hussars in 1895, Churchill gained permission to observe the Cuban War of Independence and sent war reports to The Daily Graphic. He continued his war journalism in British India, at the Siege of Malakand, then in the Sudan during the Mahdist War and in southern Africa during the Second Boer War. --Wikipedia

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."
