    Straight forward study of a great man.

    From 1942 to 1960, and even after to some degree, Dwight Eisenhower was the face of America to most foreign powers, especially the Western foreign powers. He handled power in a masterful way but also showed the indecisions that most men have on some issues. Ambrose does an excellent job in his direct often blunt style of presenting the good and bad of Eisenhower. He notes the failures and lack of decisiveness in the African campaigns while noting how he had learned from these by the time D-Day arrived. As President, Ambrose shows Ike as a moderate leader who hates the idea of war, especially a nuclear war but who can not come to grips with the glaring social issue of his administration, desegregation. This book does a great job of presenting Eisenhower as a real man who had strengths and weaknesses but kept his country's needs at the forefront of his actions.

    Wonderful Biography

    Great writer, great book about one of America's most important leaders. I never realized what an extraordinary man Eisenhower was or how difficult his duties were. We owe this man so much, everyone should read this book.
