Manchester tracks with new insights this complex, fascinating history, without ever losing sight of Churchill the man - a man whose vision was global and whose courage was boundless.

"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)
"[Manchester] can claim the considerable achievement of having assembled enough powerful evidence to support Isaiah Berlin's judgment of Churchill as the largest human being of our time." (Alistair Cooke)
Loved the first two volumes of this biography I hear the third volume is due out in 2011. Something to look forward to in the new year.
I thoroughly enjoyed both volumes. Even though the total amount of time for both books was 71 hours, I felt like time flew as I was listening.
The third volume is slated to be released next year. Before Manchester died, he began work on the final volume and picked Paul Reid as the person who will finish the book. According to what I've read, the book is to be released early 2011. Hopefully the audio version will be released around the same time.
The definitive two part account of Churchill. Manchester does a magnificent job of putting the reader into the day to day life of Churchill. A quick read with depth and fascinating history. Richard Brown does a five star narration. Listen to volume one first if you can.
