The widely praised Last Lion trilogy by William Manchester and Paul Reid takes readers on a riveting journey through the life of Britain’s great wartime leader, Winston Churchill. Little, Brown has published the books as a set – complete with maps, photographs, and other historical documents – that brings together more than 30 years of brilliant writings about Churchill. This work goes far beyond facts and anecdotes and offers extraordinary insight into a thoughtful, complicated man.
Our custom jackets feature a photograph of Churchill taken in 1943 as he emerges from 10 Downing Street. The front and back covers of each volume reveal a side of the two-time prime minister generally unknown to the public – that of an artist, whose striking oil paintings hang in museums and galleries around the world.
