My Early Life, also known in the USA as A Roving Commission: My Early Life, is a 1930 book by Winston Churchill. It is an autobiography from his birth in 1874 up to approximately 1902. A significant portion of the book covers his experiences in the Second Boer War of 1899-1902 which he had earlier described in London to Ladysmith via Pretoria (1900) and Ian Hamilton's March (1900). It also includes descriptions of other campaigns he had previously written about: The River War (1899), concerning the reconquest of Sudan, and The Story of the Malakand Field Force (1898) in today's Pakistan. The book begins by describing his childhood and schooldays, and provides context for the earlier accounts.

dbo:abstract
  • Meine frühen Jahre: Weltabenteuer im Dienst (im Original: My Early Life: A Roving Commission) ist der Titel eines 1930 erschienen Memoirenwerkes des britischen Staatsmannes Sir Winston Churchill, das eine Autobiografie seiner Jugendjahre darstellt. Die in Meine frühen Jahre beschriebenen Ereignisse und Wechselfälle erstrecken sich über einen Zeitraum von knapp vierunddreißig Jahren, beginnend mit der Geburt des späteren Staatsmannes in Blenheim Palace, dem Schloss seines Großvaters, dem 7. Herzog von Marlborough, 1874, bis zur Eheschließung des zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits zum Handelsministers des britischen Königreiches avancierten Jungpolitikers Churchill mit Clementine Hozier im Jahr 1908, der das Buch auch gewidmet ist („Im Jahre 1908 heiratete ich und lebte fortan herrlich und in Freuden“). Der Erstveröffentlichung des Werkes als Buch im Oktober 1930 durch Thornton Butterworth in London – mit einer Startauflage von 5750 Exemplaren, der aufgrund der großen Nachfrage bis Ende des Jahres drei weitere Auflagen in Höhe von einmal 2500 und zweimal 1500 Exemplaren nachgeschoben wurden – ging zwischen dem 30. August und dem 20. September, eine „serialisierte“ Veröffentlichung des Buches, Abschnitt um Abschnitt, in der Tageszeitung The News Chronicle voraus. (de)
