Churchill and His Early Political Years

Winston Churchill started in politics as an MP in 1900 at the age of 25, after an illustrious career in the military. Back from South Africa after the Second Boer War he started an incredible career spanning the unstable and constantly changing period to up to WWII.

Churchill’s rapid ascent in politics, his fall from power and return to it are legendary, as well as how he influenced change in British politics, policies on immigration and his understanding of the need for rearmament.

William Tyler is a world expert on Churchill – and can weave together the myriads strands of politics at that time together with Churchill’s intelligence and wit.
