No one was more certain that he was destined for greatness than Winston Churchill and he let nothing deter or discourage him from achieving it. The young Churchill saw his path to prominence and power through fearless exploits in the British Army and as a war correspondent. England's brutal war with the Boer rebels in southern Africa proved to be his crucible. Ms. Millard's exciting chronicle of his experiences there, both daring and humbling, is fitting tribute to a man whose early dreams of glory proved to be a self-fulfilling prophesy. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

For those who's knowledge of the American Revolution revolves around the Northeast, Independence Lost will be an eye-opener. DuVal uses several personal accounts to trace the Revolution's path in the Gulf Coast, a region neglected in traditional histories. Scottish entrepreneurs, Acadian farmers, Choctaw-British diplomats and French-owned slaves are represented in this vivid account of British, American, French and Spanish struggles to lay claim to eastern North America. These varied narratives exemplify the thesis that 1776 marked the start of a global conflict, not simply a rebellion.

The torpedoing of the Lusitania was considered an act of unparalleled barbarism in 1915, but whispers that the great liner was deliberately left vulnerable in dangerous waters have never completely abated. This is a thorough examination of a disaster that claimed 1,200 lives and an intelligent evaluation of the questions that surrounded it. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
