The Last Lion
By

Rating
Winston Spencer Churchill: Alone, 1932-1940 is the second volume of the outstanding three volume The Last Lion, the ultimate Churchill biography from the award-winning historian, William Manchester.In this triumphant biography, William Manchester, contends that Churchill's lonely battle against appeasement, even more than his leadership in war, was the Last Lion's finest hour. Politically isolated in Parliament, sometimes jeered at and scorned when he warned of the growing Nazi threat, Churchill stood alone, a beacon of hope amid the gathering storm.

Reviews

Manchester has such control over a huge and moving narrative, such illumination of character ... that he can claim the considerable achievement of having assembled enough powerful evidence to support Isiah Berlin's judgment of Churchill as 'the largest human being of our time.' -- Alastair Cooke The New Yorker A triumph ... equal in stature to the first volume of the series. New York Newsday The best Churchill biography for the plain readers of this generation ...Exhaustive ... interesting. Even readers who know the basic story will find much that is new, much to make them angry again. Newsweek History in the grand manner... Vivid and interesting... Here Manchester tells again the familiar but always instructive story of Churchill's unheeded fight to arouse the European democracies (and their even sleepier transatlantic ally) to the menace of Hitler. The Washington Post The best, destined to be the most memorable and the most lasting [Churchill biography]... Manchester brings new insights, new information, and a new approach. -- William L. Shirer Compelling reading. The Times
