Winston Churchill: The Last Lion, Defender Of The Realm

Claude R. Marx offers a good review in the Washington Times of The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill, Defender off the Realm. 

For nearly 24 years, history aficionados have been looking forward to the final volume of William Manchester's biography of Winston Churchill. The wait was worth it.

Manchester's two previous volumes, “The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Visions of Glory, 1874-1932” and “The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Alone, 1932-1940,” were thorough, well-written and reasonably balanced. Happily, “The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965” mostly follows that pattern.
