Notes

First edition, Colonial Library issue of Churchill's first book (the first and second printings are identical). The book relates Churchill's exploits with the Malakand field force, led by Sir Bindon Blood, on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1897, based on Churchill's despatches to the Daily Telegraph and the Pioneer Mail. As Churchill was still in India when the book was published, the final editing was undertaken by his uncle Moreton Frewen, husband of Clara Jerome, Jennie's elder sister, resulting in numerous small errors which were corrected the following year in the Silver Library edition.
