A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!
Candice Millard. Hero of the Empire: The Boer War, a Daring Escape, and the Making of Winston Churchill. New York, NY: Doubleday, September 20th 2016. 400 pp.
5 out of 5
This is the first book I read about the life of Winston Churchill and it focused on him as a young man in the military and as a war correspondent. Of course Churchill is best known for being the Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War Two but I thought it was good to read about his experiences when he was younger which of course would shape him later in life. This work by Candice Millard is narrated well and is captivating. I didn’t know so much about Churchill and I’m glad I read this book!
