This Biography is a Masterpiece. To survive in print Churchill's Biography must be spread over three huge volumes. I know of no other person whose life requires and deserves three such volumes. Manchester appropriately died while working on the third volume. His research, narrative, thoroughness is a life's work plus a little more. These volumes are as unbiased and clear minded . Churchill's status as the most important person of the past century is unrivaled. Hiss life was, if any man's life, predestined. Everyone who seeks or values Liberty and Freedom owes their debt or dream to Churchill. These massive books do a magnificent justice to Churchill and will be the biography that all others are measured over time.
and so it goes over the hills and far away blows the winds of winter and Springs just a dream over the hills and far away
The volume 3 lacks little but volumes 1 and 2 were better Manchester is not the sole author and it wears little for my part. This lion is worth your time enjoy the end of an era this is. Must read / listen for all interested in biography of great humans in my own opinion cheers!
Excellent writing, inside information, great subject.
There wasn't ONE, there were fifty.
Makes me listen to it again, which I am doing.
There are simply no words. The finest biography I have ever read about a man who changed the face of history. I believe Manchester would be happy to see Reid's conclusion to this beautiful work which adds not only outstanding global context to the events but brings Churchill to brilliant life as he is meant to be viewed. Absolutely fascinating. (Side note: many have complained of the narrator however on 1.25x speed it is quite enjoyable and the cadence sounds more natural).
Well written and well spoken. I've listened to 100's of Audible Book Recordings and this is in the top five along with "The Boys in the Boat."

Winston Churchill was the strangest in personal habits yet most brilliant man in the 20th century . I think I'll take that .
This whole set had been a marvelous and inspiring experience. It has raised my vision of what man can do and brought me to tears on multiple occasions. God surely blessed this man to bless our lives.

I have listen to all three volumes with delight. The life story is incredible, and the performance is fitting. Thank you.
The narrators are excellent . The material itself is interesting but not as insightful as the original Manchester material of the early life but still a useful historical view.Given the breadth of material and particularly the narrators strengths it is very good value.
