Finally, the third and final volume of William Manchester's magnificent biography of Winston Churchill has been published:
The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965

The second volume of Manchester's magnum opus was published in 1988. I devoured it at that time, and eagerly awaited the final volume. Alas, Mr. Manchester suffered two strokes, which precluded his ability to finish the book. Before he died (2004) he asked his friend and protegé Paul Reid to finish the book, which was published just this past November.

I just received my copy yesterday, but I'm going to go back and read the first two volumes again before diving into volume 3. By all reports, the final volume is equal to the quality of the first two. I've read several biographies of Churchill, but The Last Lion is by far the most thorough, carefully researched, and exquisitely detailed of them all. I recommend it.

That will be a fathers day present for my dad.

He has been hinting.

Sounds like something both the wife and I would like.

Thanks for the heads up.
