Frederick Woods, best known for his bibliography of Churchill's works, edited a collection of his original war despatches from the Northwest Frontier, the Sudan, and South Africa. Published in the 1972, YOUNG WINSTON'S WARS, presented material never in volume form previously. The first English edition by Leo Cooper, London was bound in plain black cloth in a glossy black dustjacket. The American first by Viking is a more attractive book, in yellow green cloth a bright blue dustwrapper.In 1992 a revised and extended edition was published by Brassey's with the title WINSTON CHURCHILL WAR CORRESPONDENT. This is worth having as it publishes Churchill's 1895 despatches from Cuba, which do not appear anywhere else except in the Collected Essays.
