Description
In our memory, Winston Churchill remains the man with the cigar and the affable expression of indefatigable perseverance; few remember that by 1916, he was considered washed up at the age of 40, his best days behind him. Journalist and historian Michael Shelden, whose biography of George Orwell was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, here focuses on Churchill's early career in Edwardian politics—the years between 1901 and 1915 that both nearly undid him but also forged the character that would later triumph in World War II. Shelden also finds clues to Churchill's character in his wooing of several prominent ladies of his time, before Clementine Hozier accepted his proposal in 1908.

"An exciting, needed look at Winston Churchill in his years as a Liberal. Breaking with the Conservatives, he battled for better working conditions, for unemployment insurance, for improvements in education. He waged a two-front war: against the Tories on the right, the socialists on the left. It is the young Churchill at his best, a great foretelling of what was to come when Britain and the world needed him most."—Chris Matthews
