Product description

Review

"Majestic . . . This book is superb. It has tremendous pace, rich detail and immense drama."--The Washington Post

"Masterful . . . The collaboration completes the Churchill portrait in a seamless manner, combining the detailed research, sharp analysis and sparkling prose that readers of the first two volumes have come to expect."--Associated Press

"Matches the outstanding quality of biographers such as Robert Caro and Edmund Morris, joining this elite bank of writers who devote their lives to one subject."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Breathtaking . . . brilliant and beautiful, evocative."--The Boston Globe

"A must-read finale for those who loved Manchester's first two books."--USA Today

"The final volume is . . . majestic and inspiring."--People

"One of the most thorough treatments of Churchill so far produced."--Library Journal (starred review)

About the Author

William Manchester was a hugely successful popular historian and renowned biographer. In addition to the first two volumes of The Last Lion, his books include Goodbye, Darkness, A World Lit Only by Fire, The Glory and the Dream, The Arms of Krupp, American Caesar, and The Death of a President, as well as assorted works of journalism. He was awarded the National Humanities Medal and the Abraham Lincoln Literary Award. He passed away in 2004.

Paul Reid is an award-winning journalist. In late 2003, Manchester, in failing health, asked him to complete The Last Lion: Defender of the Realm. He lives in North Carolina.
