Winston Churchill's Life During The Boer War

Satisfactory Essays
At the age of seven, Winston Churchill was sent to St. James’s preparatory school where kindness and sympathy were lacking. Churchill’s father was a member of the English aristocracy and his mother an American heiress. Before entering politics, he had a military career, seeing active service in defending the British Empire in India and Sudan. He also spent a brief time as a journalist in South Africa during the Boer War. Churchill attributes his entrance the military to his father’s noticing his childhood love of toy soldiers and the perception that he was a poor student.
