(KTVI)-The acclaimed “The Last Lion” trilogy tells the story of Winston Churchill's life. Churchill was born at the end of the 19th century when Imperial Britain was at the height of its power; Churchill would witness the shift a few years later as the Empire hovered on the brink of a new era.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch Political Editor Christopher Ave took an in-depth look at the third book in the trilogy, which looked at the late years of Churchill’s life. The biographer, William Manchester, died before he could complete it. Paul Reid took over and he will be at the National Churchill Museum in Fulton, MO next weekend for a series of Churchill events to mark the anniversary of the "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster College.
