In 1895, Winston Churchill, aged 21, went on his first foreign adventure – to Cuba, where Spanish troops were engaged in suppressing rebellion. The episode is scarcely mentioned in biographies of Churchill, mainly due to political and linguistic barriers to research. Here, a Canadian historian of Latin America examines Churchill’s visit to the island – his first experience as a war correspondent – and the five months up to March 1876, when he wrote his last article on Cuba’s war of independence.
