Publisher Description

The long-awaited final volume of William Manchester's legendary biography of Winston Churchill.

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.

Magnificent Work!

I'd been searching for a biography of Churchill and happened across The Last Lion... It proved to be a fortuitous discovery ~ this is a very well done biography and a fascinating work. I recommend it most enthusiastically!

Thank you

Excellent book. The writing style is not exactly the same as in the first two books in the series. Actually easier to read in that there is not as much of the laboring detail that went into the other books.
Still a wonderful read.

We have been waiting for a long time for the finish. Thank you Paul (Reid) for the completion.
