Product description

Review

An account of the first 25 years of his life…Here he brings back those days with magical clarity -- Nicholas Bagnall, The Sunday Telegraph

some would put it as one of the outstanding works of the twentieth century -- Roy Jenkins, Churchill

the best of all his books -- Lord Deedes

this wonderful book confirms his stature as one of the finest English prose stylists of the last century -- Simon Shaw, The Mail on Sunday --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Here, in his own words, are the fascinating first thirty years in the life of one of the most provocative and compelling leaders of the twentieth century - Winston Churchill. As a visionary, statesman, and historian, and the most eloquent spokesman against the Nazi Germany, Winston Churchill was one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century. In this autobiography, Churchill recalls his childhood, his schooling, his years as a war correspondent in South Africa during the Boer War, and his first forays into politics as a member of Parliament. My Early Life not only gives readers insights into the shaping of a great leader but, as Churchill himself wrote, "a picture of a vanished age".
