3 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the title essay Controversy , Manchester details his experience writing The Death of a President, the award-winning account of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It was indeed a controversy like few others, engaging one of the most prominent historians of the day against Jackie Kennedy, the most famous, yet private, widow in the world. This 76-page essay provides a compelling insider's account of the most high-profile publishing struggle of its day. A work of love, even passion.... Mr. Manchester's final telling of the death of Kennedy is most moving; it is also less controversial than one had been led to believe by those who read the original manuscript. --Gore Vidal This sweeping collection further provides a penetrating look at the period between World War II and the Vietnam era. In an account that's both exacting in its accuracy and a pleasure to read, these essays cover the events that shaped world history during this period of time--from the Bay of Pigs fiasco to Watergate and Vietnam

The last lion, Winston Spencer Churchill by William Manchester ( Recording )
13 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
