Synopsis:
Spanning the years of 1940-1965, THE LAST LION picks up shortly after Winston Churchill became Prime Minister-when his tiny island nation stood alone against the overwhelming might of Nazi Germany. The Churchill conjured up by William Manchester and Paul Reid is a man of indomitable courage, lightning fast intellect, and an irresistible will to action. THE LAST LION brilliantly recounts how Churchill organized his nation's military response and defense; compelled FDR into supporting America's beleaguered cousins, and personified the "never surrender" ethos that helped the Allies win the war, while at the same time adapting himself and his country to the inevitable shift of world power from the British Empire to the United States.

More than twenty years in the making, THE LAST LION presents a revelatory and unparalleled portrait of this brilliant, flawed, and dynamic leader. This is popular history at its most stirring.

Book Description: Little, Brown. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Book Condition: New. This is the final part of the magisterial three-volume biography of Winston Churchill (following Visions of Glory, 1874–1932 and Alone, 1932–1940) from National Humanities Medal and Abraham Lincoln Literary Award recipient William Manchester, who, in failing health, turned to Paul Reid to finish the book. It picks up shortly after Winston Churchill became Prime Minister—when his island nation stood alone against the might of Nazi Germany—and conjures up a man of indomitable courage, lightning fast intellect, and an irresistible will to action. "Manchester has such control over a huge and moving narrative, such illumination of character," wrote Alistair Cooke in The New Yorker, ". that he can claim the considerable achievement of having assembled enough powerful evidence to support Isaiah Berlin's judgment of Churchill as 'the largest human being of our time'." 1182.
