Manchester had met Churchill when, as a young foreign correspondent, he found himself in the stateroom on the Queen Mary adjacent to the prime ministerís suite. A mutual friend introduced them. Churchill was intrigued by Manchesterís assignment: the Middle East and India. Manchester worked with diaries, memoranda, government documents, the private correspondence of Churchill and others, interviewed Churchillís surviving colleagues and members of his family. He had a profound grasp of British history. He served for many years as a professor of history and was the author of many other important works including THE DEATH OF A PRESIDENT, AMERICAN CAESAR, THE ARMS OF KRUPP and THE GLORY AND THE DREAM.
