Product Description

About the Author

Winston Churchill was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He attended Smith Academy in Missouri and the United States Naval Academy, where he graduated in 1894. After his graduation, he became editor of the Army and Navy Journal. He resigned from the navy to pursue a writing career. In 1895, he became managing editor of the Cosmopolitan Magazine, but in less than a year he retired from that, to have more time for writing. While he would be most successful as a novelist, he was also a published poet and essayist. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

HASH(0xa46b0ed0) out of 5 stars The value of war Dec 19 2010
By Paul J. Leach - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author is the well-known (in his time) American novelist, not the English politician. The book is a short (about 70-80 pages) report on his brief visit to Britain and France shortly after the U.S. entered WWI but before American troops were fully engaged. The idea was to give the American public an impression of what it was like "over there".

While giving war's calamities their due, he nonetheless projects considered approval of the war, if it had to happen, as a progressive force -- for democracy, egalitarianism, and women's emancipation -- and as one for self-realization: giving people a purpose to their lives. War is even a force for environmentalism: there is an admiring sketch of a recycling (then called "reclamation") plant in the war zone.

There is no clear organizing principle, not even a chronological one; it just jumps from one vignette to the next.

Note that there are some quotations missing from the text of the free version (but, oddly enough, not in the Kindle version at Project Gutenberg).
HASH(0xa46b111c) out of 5 stars Travel to Europe during WW I Dec 1 2012
By Hill Country Bob - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Date estimated as late 1917, but it could be early 1918 as well.

Written by the American Winston Churchill who was a famous author of the late 1800s, and early 1900s, not the British Winston Spencer Churchill. A WW I travel book of a trip to France and the British army held part of the front, as well as the impact on the civilians in small towns and villages and Paris. The destruction of the towns that were in the combat zone is described. He traveled to England and Ireland to visit American ships as well. Interesting to look at the events through the eyes of someone who was there and had access as wrote well.
