    Lawrence James writes that Churchill's 'ardent and unswerving faith in the British Empire' has been 'overlooked or discreetly sidelined in Churchillian literature'. From his experience as a young army officer, serving in conflicts in India, South Africa and the Sudan, to his resignation as Prime Minister in 1955, this portrait of Churchill offers a new perspective on the imperial preoccupations that came to be seen as outmoded but make him such a compellingly contradictory figure.
