The Spring 2015 issue of the Sewanee Review has an article, entitled “Remembering Winston Churchill The Making of a Book,” about the researching and writing of The Last Lion: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965. This volume completes the three volume life of Churchill that was begun by William Manchester who fell ill and passed away before finishing the last volume. The article describes the “daunting” task faced by Paul Reid who was selected to complete the book, discusses the book’s reception upon its publication, and considers the question of how different this book is from the one Manchester would have written. The author of the article is Mel Livatino. The website for the Sewanee Review is here.
