Two weeks after his arrival the soldiers he was accompanying on a train were ambushed and Churchill was taken prisoner. He pulled off a daring escape traversed hundreds of miles through enemy territory with a wad of cash, four bits of chocolate, and his wits to guide him. As if his escape was not incredible enough, he enlisted and returned to South Africa and ultimately helped liberate the men he was previously imprisoned with.
