cover: Hero of the Empire

March 1 & 21, 2018. Hero of the Empire: The Boer War, a Daring Escape, and the Making of Winston Churchill by Candice Millard.

Bestselling author Candice Millard spins an epic story of bravery, savagery, and chance encounters with a cast of historical characters—including Rudyard Kipling, Lord Kitchener, and Mohandas Gandhi—with whom Churchill would later share the world stage. But this is more than an extraordinary adventure story, for the lessons Churchill took from the Boer War would profoundly affect twentieth century history.
