At the beginning of the twentieth century Churchill was to begin his lifelong political career, with a burning desire to emulate his late father. Whilst attaining high political office and gaining experience in a number of Cabinet roles, the looming spectre of war saw him work in a position that best suited his interests and allowed him to prepare the Royal Navy for the future conflict. Although personally his life was to change with marriage and fatherhood, his desire to earn enough money to support his family and luxurious lifestyle also played a large part in his life during this period. The questions in this chapter explore the evolution of Churchill from an adventurous young man to an established politician eager to show the world his talents, before one of the most cataclysmic historical events would change the society of Britain as he knew it forever.
