Klappentext

At the age of twenty-four, Winston Churchill already believed he was destined for greatness. This is the story of one dramatic year in Churchill's life, an adventure that involved war in South Africa, imprisonment, endurance and escape. It would, as Churchill said, lay the foundations of his extraordinary life.
