Winston Churchill
The Making of a Hero in the South African War
by Eric Bolsman

One of the greatest talents that Winston Churchill was blessed with
with was his extraordinary command of the English language.
He would go on to write a prodigious 65 books in his lifetime.
He was rewarded for this in 1953 when he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Yet in Britain his abilities as a writer were already widely recognised by the end of the 19th century.
Yet oddly enough he had not excelled academically at school
and it was only on his third attempt that he passed the entrance examination
to the Royal Military Academy at Sand hurst .

This is the story of his bravery while with the British Army in South Africa  
as a war correspondent and as a Special Service officer for which he was much acclaimed.
