    This second volume in William Manchester's three-volume biography of Winston Churchill challenges the assumption that Churchill's finest hour was as a wartime leader. During the years 1932-1940, he was tested as few men are. Pursued by creditors (at one point he had to put up his home for sale), he remained solvent only by writing an extraordinary number of books and magazine articles.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Last Lion?

    The whole portrait of Winston, both his virtues and his foibles.
    And the historical WWI with anecdotes describing the horrors of war


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Winston, of course


    How could the performance have been better?

    There needs to be a better volume control. It is difficult to hear unless you are in a totally silent setting. Very disappointing as I listen in the car and on a treadmill. TURN IT UP!!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Impossible. 42 hrs. and 39 minutes made this a long read
