"The Last Lion" by William Manchester and Paul Reid


It is a hobby of mine when a new book is published to review how the author(s) treated Iran. Within the 900 pages of this manuscript, the Shah was mentoned in one lone paragraph and it was historically incorrect.

On page 517, the author wrote,,,"When Reza Pahlavi fled the country, Winston Churchill propped the twenty two year old Mohammed Reza Pahlavi on the Peacock throne." 

Initially, I was outraged with the words, "fled" and "propped". How could a historian treat a great man so shamefully? Then I thought, The Royal Family has been mistreated for years. Cruel remarks made absent of any true facts.

The true account of what happened in 1941 can be found in any reference book.
