Description
In his sweeping biography of Dwight David Eisenhower, Michael Korda chronicles and defends Ike's military career, his generalship in World War II, and his leadership of the Allied war effort while surrounded by competing military men and heads of state, painting a picture of a remarkable man in an extraordinary time.

"Eisenhower's life has been so thoroughly researched that new volumes of Ikenography must rely on the way they are told to set the bar of interest. Korda easily clears it. Synthesizing the private with the public and historical man from war memoirs and secondary sources, Korda ventures opinion and speculation more freely than might a professional historian. However, Korda's suppositions, such as his lengthy musings about the degree of intimacy between Eisenhower and his wartime chauffeur, Kay Summersby, plus his apt expressions of Eisenhower's salient character traits (such as a volcanic temper concealed by outward geniality) are undeniably engaging.... With a sure touch on Ike's Kansas boyhood, marriage to Mamie, and prewar army mentors, Korda, former book publishing executive and present wide-ranging author, successfully reintroduces the Eisenhower personality that was so popular privately, militarily, and politically."Booklist
