Description

  • Bantam
  • Spanning the years 1940 to 1965, The Last Lion: Defender of the Realm begins shortly after Winston Churchill became
    prime minister—when Great Britain stood alone against the overwhelming might of Nazi Germany. In brilliant prose and
    informed by decades of research, William Manchester and Paul Reid recount how Churchill organized his nation’s military
    response and defense, convinced FDR to support the cause, and personified the “never surrender” ethos that helped win
    the war. We witness Churchill, driven from office, warning the world of the coming Soviet menace. And after his
    triumphant return to 10 Downing Street, we follow him as he pursues his final policy goal: a summit with President
    Dwight Eisenhower and Soviet leaders. And in the end, we experience Churchill’s last years, when he faces the end of his
    life with the same courage he brought to every battle he ever fought.
