VOLUME TWO -- The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill, VOLUME TWO: Alone, 1932-1940

[Read by Richard Brown]

This second volume in William Manchester's three-volume biography of Winston Churchill challenges the assumption that Churchill's finest hour was as a wartime leader. During the years 1932-1940, he was tested as few men are. Pursued by creditors -- at one point he had to put up his home for sale -- he remained solvent only by writing an extraordinary number of books and magazine articles. He was disowned by his own party, dismissed by the BBC and Fleet Street and the social and political establishments as a warmonger, and twice nearly lost his seat in Parliament. Churchill stood almost alone against Nazi aggression and the British and French pusillanimous policy of appeasement.

Manchester tracks with new insights this complex, fascinating history without ever losing sight of Churchill the man -- a man whose vision was global and whose courage was boundless.

As a biographer, William Manchester is the standard by which all others are measured. And when a writer of his caliber is matched with a subject as colorful as Winston Churchill, look for results that are magisterial. This -- the second in a three-volume biography -- is a momentous piece of work.
