9780440500476: LAST LION: ALONE

In the second of his three-volume biography, Manchester challenges the assumption that Churchill's finest hour was as a wartime leader. During the years 1932-1940, Churchill stood almost alone against Nazi aggression and the British and French pusillanimous policy of appeasement.

About the Author:

WILLIAM MANCHESTER (1922-2004) was a professor emeritus of history at Wesleyan University. His best-selling books included The Last Lion, a multi-volume biography of Winston Churchill, and American Caesar, a biography of Douglas MacArthur.

Review:

''Manchester is not only a master of detail but also of 'the big picture' . . . I daresay most Americans reading The Last Lion will relish it immensely.'' --National Review

''[Manchester] 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.'' --Alistair Cooke
