Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Last Lion Last of the Manchester trilogy. Unhappily, completed after his death. A great read about an amazing person. Amazing is much overused but in this case and for this person entirely appropriate word. Glad that his work was finished!!

Editorial Reviews

"An absorbing book, well worth owning by anyone from casual browser to the expert."-The Churchill Project"These photographs preserve flashes of the personality of a great man. At a time when the study of greatness is too often undervalued, Carlson's book makes an important contribution to the works available on one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century." -Chartwell Bulletin"A most welcome addition to the canon of Churchill photobiographies, this new volume is one of the handsomest yet seen, and filled with rarely seen images from the entirety of Churchill's career." -Chartwell Booksellers
