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."
