The Last Lion

Comments Off

[Today’s run: 8 miles]

I thought I would mention this book I have been reading.  The Last Lion by William Manchester.  It is the second book of a three-part biography of Winston Churchill.  Very interesting stuff.  I am wading through the mid-1930’s and how the British government was trying so hard to avoid a repeat of WW-I.

I bought this at the Palmer House Thrift Store, I think.  I do not have part 1 or part 3.

Before this I read the autobiographies  of U.S. Grant and W.T. Sherman.  Before that it was the biography of Dr. Johnson by Boswell.

I guess I am on a biography roll these days.

It is interesting to see how people acted in the circumstances of their lives.
