Excellent. The story and presentation were worthy of the man. I would highly recommend all 3 volumes. The readers for all 3 volumes were good with volume 1 outstanding.
I had heard that this book was a let down due to William Manchester's untimely strokes, but Paul Reid nailed it. It's a superb book (incidentally very well performed), but more importantly, it was true to Manchester in every sense. Mr. Reid deserves tremendous credit for his ability to replicate his predecessor's voice without in any way diminishing the quality or style of the work. A climax and close to an epic trilogy.
A must for the history buff Winston Churchill is the most important person of the twentieth century the only man who could have stopped Hitler and he knew it.
I never thought I would make it through all 7 but Winston held my attention though out this remarkable account.
I am writing this review with tears in my eyes. This book, like the others in the trilogy, is a masterpiece of human history. It's quality defies adequate description, and I am left with equal parts profound satisfaction at having completed the tale, and regret that I can never again experience it's beauty anew.
Read it. The book is a fantastic conclusion to Manchester's churchill trilogy, and one of the best WWII histories you will find. Narration is poignant and animating. Highly recommended.
