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

Millard, an author who has distinguished herself with previous works on Theodore Roosevelt’s ill-fated Amazon journey and James A. Garfield’s doomed presidency, focuses her newest work on Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of England. From his upper class upbringing to his quest for distinction, this is a jolly good read.
