Long before his finest hour as Britain’s wartime leader, Winston Churchill emerged on the world stage as a brazen foreign correspondent, covering wars of empire in Cuba, India, the Sudan, and South Africa.

In those far-flung corners of the world, reporting from the front lines between 1895 and 1900, Churchill mastered his celebrated command of language and formed strong opinions about war. He thought little of his own personal safety, so convinced was he of his destiny, jumping at any chance to be where bullets flew and canons roared. “I have faith in my star that I am intended to do something in the world,” he wrote to his mother at the age of twenty-three before heading into battle.

Based on his private letters and war reportage, Winston Churchill Reporting intertwines young Winston’s daring exploits in combat, adventures in distant corners of the globe, and rise as a major literary talent experiences that shaped the world leader he was to become.
