Duration: 36 hours 27 minutes
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.
"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
