Annotation While many studies of Winston Churchill focus rightly on his amazing career as prime minister, when he led his nation through its most difficult time, IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF CHURCHILL looks at Churchill's influences. In this readerly and accessible biography, Richard Holmes mines the many letters, public records, and biographies by other writers, as he looks for the sources of Churchill's greatness in his family (especially his mother, Jennie) and in the Victorian milieu in which he grew up, as well as in his world travels and experiences in the Boer War, his writing, and his long and varied career in politics. Holmes presents Churchill as a young man on his way up, and shows how his character--headstrong, aloof, and confrontational--brings him both success and setbacks, and how the apprenticeship of some 40-odd years was a prelude to Churchill's finest hour.
