Winston Churchill's outstanding characteristic, for me, was his tireless participation in life, from the lowly task of wall masonry to the saving of his country from the Nazi scourge. That work ethic is evident in "My Early Life. Because he was a superior man, I never mind his superior attitude, which also comes across in this book. Churchill lived his life to the fullest in a manner that not only pleased him but benefitted others. He is someone to be emulated.

Winston Churchill (1874–1965) was a British statesman, army officer, and writer. Born in Oxford in 1874 to an aristocratic family though not well-to-do, he attended boarding school as was the norm for children of his class at the time. He was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the army at the age of 21. He participated in the Boer War and was captured and made a prisoner of war. His escape from prison and his journey to freedom are well chronicled in print and movies and gained him much publicity in Britain

It may be said, therefore, that the military opinion of the world is opposed to those people who cry 'Democratize the army!' and it must be remembered that an army is not a field upon which persons with Utopian ideas may exercise their political theories, but a weapon for the defence of the State.

How I hated this school, and what a life of anxiety I lived there for more than two years. I made very little progress at my lessons, and none at all at games. I counted the days and the hours to the end of every term, when I should return home from this hateful servitude and range my soldiers in line of battle on the nursery floor. The greatest pleasure I had in those days was reading. When I was nine and a half my father gave me Treasure Island, and I remember the delight with which I devoured it.
