The future prime minister served as an officer with a cavalry unit in India that saw no action, while he was there. Wanting to see some fighting, young Churchill connived to get himself temporarily attached to the Malakand field force, which was in action in the northwest frontier area and contracted with some British newspapers to write of what he saw. Informative, exciting and well written. Highly relevant today, for his description of the culture and attitude of the people of northern Pakistan, along the Afghan border. Churchill tells you who the Taliban are.
