Churchill’s father said Winston lacked common sense and intelligence. He was not optimistic about his prospects. Churchill did not focus in school but he had an interest in military history and tactics. When he joined the cavalry, things began to change. He worked as a war correspondent in Cuba, India, Sudan, and South Africa. He began to realize he was a man of destiny and his experiences transformed him. He also realized traditional wars against guerrillas were pointless. Listen to a wonderful conversation with author Simon Read about his new book, “Winston Churchill Reporting”.
