For anyone who is interested, I picked up a copy of "Churchill Style." If you haven't taken the time, it's a really interesting read because it focuses on aspects of The Right Honorable Winston Churchill that are often not covered. Such as, his favorite cars, where he liked to get his suits, accessories, and his favorite tobbacconist to name a few. In addition, there is an appendix in the back listing the shops that Chiuchill patronized that still exist, as well as the ones who's names have changed, and a couple that have become brand names.

The only thing I know of the Boer War is the Breaker Morant Court Martial.

I highly recommend it. It's a bit on the long side, but it's the type of book that leaves you wishing that there was yet even more. I suppose that's why the book stops at 1911! Heh.

The proper title is: "The Age of Churchill - Heritage and Adventure 1874-1911" by Peter de Mendelssohn, published by Knopf in 1961. Excellent book- it covers what is missing in later editions of Churchill's own recollections. Quite fascinating, really.

I am currently reading "Winston Spencer Churchill- the Early Years, 1874-1911".
A very interesting read, and casts much light on Sir Winston's Boer War years.
