About the book:

In this powerful biography, the middle volume of William Manchesters critically acclaimed trilogy, Winston Churchill wages his defining campaign: not against Hitlers war machine but against his own reluctant countrymen. Manchester contends that even more than his leadership in combat, Churchills finest hour was the uphill battle against appeasement. As Parliament received with jeers and scorn his warnings against the growing Nazi threat, Churchill stood aloneonly to be vindicated by history as a beacon of hope amid the gathering storm.
Praise for The Last Lion: Alone
Manchester has such control over a huge and moving narrative, such illumination of character . . . that he can claim the considerable achievement of having assembled enough powerful evidence to support Isaiah Berlins judgment of Churchill as the largest human being of our time.The New Yorker
Memorable.San Francisco Chronicle
Stirring . . . As Manchester points out several times, its as if the age, having produced a Hitler, then summoned Churchill as the only figure equal to the task of vanquishing him. The years Alone are the pivotal years of Churchills career.The Boston Sunday Globe
