Hero of the Empire

the Boer War, a Daring Escape and the Making of Winston Churchill
Jan 04, 2021
Millard delivers another extremely readable book about the fascinating history of an important individual. Like her previous "Destiny of the Republic," her writing style is engaging, the pace is perfect and her way of connecting events that happened over 100 years ago with the modern reader is skilled. In this book she tells the story about Winston Churchill the war correspondent. He covered the Boer War around the turn of the 20th century. I learned a lot about the Boer War (which has always been a mystery to me) and Churchill before his political career. A great read. -- Ian S., Communication
