The first of two Boer War volumes derived from young Winston's newspaper despatches as a war correspondent in South Africa, featuring a thrilling account of his escape from the Boers, an escape that helped launch his political career. The First English edition was published elaborately in fawn-colored cloth stamped with a striking cover illustration of the infamous armored train that Churchill was defending when he was captured. The American edition is an unadorned, though still handsome, red cloth binding with gilt lettering.

Description: This is a very good copy, in an unclipped dust jacket, of the very handsome facsimile re-issue published in South Africa in 1982, photo-reproduced from the First English edition, complete with the original folding maps. Virtually mint.
