    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"

    Story

    what an amazing book. i thought even better than the authors FDR book.
    A very thorough, incredibly well researched peice. Lots of insights from journal entries, diaries, letters, government documents. Gives an insight into Eisenhower that i never heard/had before. Is very critical at times and very supportive of him at others. well balanced. Very very well read.
    What one would give for a leader of his stature at this point.
    one of the best biographies and histories of this period i have read.
