Savrola. A Tale of the Revolution in Laurania. - Sir Winston Spencer Churchill 1900 - Longmans, London - First English Edition A clean, crisp copy in a beautiful recent leather binding.

Written when Churchill was 23 and first appearing in serial form in ‘
Macmillan's Magazine’, Savrola was Churchill's only novel. It embodies his early personal philosophy on life, which was to govern his later military and political career.

‘For those who know of his later exploits, it provides an amazing foreshadowing of events in his own life. Though the plot is sometimes clumsy, there are flashes of poignancy in his prose that are deeply insightful for a man of his age.’
