    Author of the best-seller FDR, Jean Edward Smith is a master of the presidential biography. Setting his sights on Dwight D. Eisenhower, Smith delivers a rich account of Eisenhower’s life using previously untapped primary sources. From the military service in WWII that launched his career to the shrewd political decisions that kept America out of wars with the Soviet Union and China, Smith reveals a man who never faltered in his dedication to serving America, whether in times of war or peace.

    Keith Storrs says: "Great book to get to know Ike"
    "Well balanced, well written."

    Story
    What did you love best about Eisenhower in War and Peace?

    The balanced approached to Ike's relationship with the British and the non-nationalist, non-critical asessment of reasons some of his decisions were made and how he dealt with his American subordinates in implimenting them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The reason I chose the book was to learn more about Ike and how and why he made decisions that still affect us all.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Hecht’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time with him.
