I thought I would give this title a go based on a good review from Walter Isaacson who wrote a biography on Benjamin Franklin that I enjoyed very much. Korda is not a writer that kept me interested in reading this book. The information on Eisenhower is fascinating, but I felt more like I was reading Korda's notes, or the rough draft before putting final touches on the book. (This could be attributed to a bad editor as well'). There is vast detail of the President during his army years, and literally less than 70 of the 720 pages about Eisenhower's Presidency. Overall is was hard to stay awake during the reading, and hard to get a good feel of who Ike was as a husband, father, soldier, general, or president. It is full of detail though. I will be picking up the Biography of Eisenhower by Stephen Ambrose who is a fantastic historian and author, and I know I will not be disappointed with that reading.
