In 1947, a young William Manchester--the man who would later become a celebrated biographer, historian, and novelist--was working as a reporter for <i style=mso-bidi-font-style:normal>The Baltimore Sun. It was there that he met fellow journalist H.L. Mencken, the influential writer and cofounder of the magazines <i style=mso-bidi-font-style:normal>The American Mercury and <i style=mso-bidi-font-style:normal>The Smart Set. While attending the University of Missouri, Manchester tackled Mencken as the subject of his Masters thesis. When the resulting biography was published on the wider market in 1951, it made a splash--establishing Manchester's reputation as a skilled writer, biographer, and political commentator. This book tells the story of conservative anarchist H.L. Mencken's life in compelling detail--a story that's energetic, controversial, and surprisingly intimate. Crafted in vivid prose, William Manchester brings Mencken's world to life. William Manchester was the most popular and highly regarded historian and biographer of his time--and this powerful book supports that reputation. Manchester's book is written with verve, intellectual sophistication, and a prickly wit worthy of its eminent subject ... [<i style=mso-bidi-font-style: normal>The Life and Riotous Times of H.L. Mencken] performs a considerable service for American intellectual history. It is, besides, a first-class piece of literate entertainment.-<i style=mso-bidi-font-style:normal>-The New Yorker

Spanning the years 1940 to 1965, Defender of the Realm picks up shortly after Winston Churchill became prime minister--when his tiny island nation stood alone against the overwhelming might of Nazi Germany. The Churchill portrayed by Manchester and Reid is a man of indomitable courage, lightning-fast intellect, and an irresistible will to action. This volume brilliantly recounts how Churchill organized his nation's military response and defense, compelled President Roosevelt to support America's beleaguered cousins, and personified the "never surrender" ethos that helped the Allies win the war, while at the same time adapting himself and his country to the inevitable shift of world power from the British Empire to the United States
