Review
------

“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 Berlin’s 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, it’s 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 Churchill’s
career.”—The Boston Sunday Globe

“The best Churchill biography [for] this generation . . . Even readers who know the basic story will find much that is
new.”—Newsweek

“A triumph . . . equal in stature to the first volume of the series.”—Newsday

“Vivid . . . history in the grand manner.”—The Washington Post

“Compelling reading.”—The Times (London)
