Collector's Guide

Frontiers and Wars is a one-volume abridgment of Churchill’s first four books (Malakand, The River War, London to Ladysmith,¬†and Ian Hamilton’s March), which were all derived from his newspaper dispatches covering various colonial wars. Although Frontiers and Wars appeared in Churchill’s lifetime, he had nothing to do with its preparation, nor did it contain new material, though it is, in and of itself, a new text and a fascinating distillation.
