Raptis Rare Books welcomes back acclaimed speaker and historian Lee Pollock of The International Churchill Society as he explores the fascinating story of “Winston Churchill, Reporting”.
Winston Churchill ranks as one of the greatest statesman of modern times, renowned for his
defense of Britain and the free world in their “darkest hour”. Politics was Churchill’s vocation
but he began his professional life as a reporter and journalist. Although born into the British
aristocracy, he lived, in the words of one family member, “from pen to mouth”.
In just five years beginning at age 21, Churchill shot to fame as a cavalry officer and war
correspondent across the globe, from the jungles of Cuba and the mountains of India’s
northwest frontier to the banks of the Nile and the plains of South Africa. Years later, even
while rising to the highest levels of government, he remained one of the best paid writers in the
world, published in leading newspapers and magazines in Britain and America throughout the
1920’s and ‘30’s.
