More Churchill Treasures

via Arthurs Classic Novels and Project Gutenberg.

London to Ladysmith via Pretoria. Churchill's despatches from the first months of the Boer War. A map (of sorts) here.

The River War - Sudan - the battle of Omdurman and the fall of the Khalifa.

I've been meaning to read some of Churchill's earlier books for some time. At the moment, I'm busy with Martin Gilbert's "Churchill and America", as well as trying to get in Jeffrey Archer's "First Among Equals" too.

You might want to skip Archer and save yourself the bother. I freely admit to never reading any of his books :)
