Description
During his time in office, President Dwight D. Eisenhower projected the image of a genial bureaucrat, yet he oversaw an espionage agenda that included the overthrow of governments, assassination plots, and the growth of the CIA into an organization with global reach. Originally published in 1981, this history from Eisenhower biographer Stephen Ambrose—also the founder of the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans—gives a behind-the-scenes look at some of America's most ambitious secret operations, including the 1954 overthrow of Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán’s government in Guatemala; Operation AJAX, which toppled Iran’s Mossadegh; and the U-2 reconnaissance flights over Russia.

"Revealing and engagingly written ... a book with the qualities of an adventure story."—NYReview of Books
