Winston S. Churchill bust

THE RIVER WAR [1899]

(Cohen A2) (Woods A2)
More blood and guts reportage by young Winston, the war correspondent, here in his second book delivering a brilliant history of British involvement in the Sudan and an account of the fierce campaign for its reconquest that Churchill himself participated in and, in many significant ways, disapproved of. Originally published in two large, lavish and, today, extremely rare volumes. All subsequent editions were significantly abridged.
