Stephen E. Ambrose draws upon extensive sources, an unprecedented degree of scholarship, and numerous interviews with Eisenhower himself to offer the fullest, richest, most objective rendering yet of the soldier who became president. He gives us a masterly account of the European war theater and Eisenhower's magnificent leadership as Allied Supreme Commander. Ambrose's recounting of Eisenhower's presidency, the first of the Cold War, brings to life a man and a country struggling with issues as diverse as civil rights, atomic weapons, communism, and a new global role. Along the way, Ambrose follows the 34th President's relations with the people closest to him, most of all Mamie, his son John, and Kay Summersby, as well as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Harry Truman, Nixon, Dulles, Khrushchev, Joe McCarthy, and indeed, all the American and world leaders of his time. This superb interpretation of Eisenhower's life confirms Stephen Ambrose's position as one of our finest historians.… (més)

When I first read this book decades ago, Stephen Ambrose's biography of Dwight Eisenhower was regarded as the most comprehensive account of his life available. At the time I thought it a good book, and I appreciated what I learned from it about a figure whose tenure as president was still undergoing historical reconsideration. In recent years, however, the validity of much of Ambrose's work has come into question, with evidence of everything from plagiarism to fabricated sources. With so much of Ambrose's scholarship on Eisenhower now suspect, readers are better off turning to more up-to-date biographies (such as Jean Edward Smith's [b:Eisenhower in War and Peace|11958983|Eisenhower in War and Peace|Jean Edward Smith|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1333579846s/11958983.jpg|16921250]) to learn about the man and the times in which he lived.

One of my favorite biographies by one of my favorite authors. Excellent coverage of his time as Supreme Allied Commander in Europe and how he handled the egos of the Generals working for him. Equally impressive is the details of his presidency. Very readable. ( )

Dwight Eisenhower was not exactly born into poverty, but the family's circumstances were at least austere. He was one of seven children; his father, a railway worker. But the family was strong and unified, the youngsters energetic and ambitious.

Ike made it to West Point, where he excelled in sports. He was a natural leader. But it was at Leavenworth years later, as a student at the war college, that his intellectual talent showed itself. He graduated... ( )

Very readable biography of Dwight Eisenhower and the history of US events/politics during the 1940s,1950s, and 1960s. I liked the length and readability, but for some of the key players surrounding Eisenhower (e.g. John Foster Dulles) it would have been nice to get a bit more background. OVerall very enjoyable and accessible. ( )

I was looking for a well-written one-volume history of Eisenhower and this was perfect. Fair, accurate, and very well-researched. ( )
