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 Isiah Berlin's judgment of Churchill as 'the largest human being of our time.'

Alastair Cooke - The New Yorker

A triumph . . . equal in stature to the first volume of the series.

New York Newsday

The best Churchill biography for the plain readers of this generation . . .Exhaustive . . . interesting. Even readers who know the basic story will find much that is new, much to make them angry again.
