All three volumes of the celebrated historian William Manchester's landmark biography of Winston Churchill are collected for the first time in this magnificent boxed set. More than thirty years in the making, The Last Lionis the definitive work on this remarkable man whose courageous vision guided the destiny of a nation during darkly troubled times-and who looms as one of the greatest figures of our century. Born at the end of the 19th century when Imperial Britain still stood at the splendid pinnacle of her power, Churchill would witness the shift a few years later as the Empire hovered on the brink of a catastrophic new era. One of the greatest wartime leaders of our time, he would go on to stand alone, politically isolated in Parliament, as he took the lead in warning of the growing Nazi threat, and he would lead Britain to victory against Nazi Germany and the Axis powers in World War II. Universally acclaimed for their compelling narrative, their fresh insights, and their objective renderings of Winston Churchill's life, the three volumes that comprise The Last Lionpresent a revelatory and unparalleled portrait of this brilliant, flawed, and dynamic adventurer, aristocrat, soldier, and statesman.
