Overview

New York Times bestselling author of D-Day, historian and biographer Stephen E. Ambrose lends his unmistakable voice to the groundbreaking Character Above All audio series with a return to the man so memorably profiled in his two-volume biography of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Recorded live at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin, Ambrose continues a series of lectures delivered by a team of historians, biographers and journalists assembled by Robert Wilson to explore the Presidential character. Sharing their insight into the Presidents they have written about, these authors and scholars address the larger issue of the impact of the Presidential character on leadership and the creation of trust.
Ambrose tells of Ike -- a great and good man, who stood up to the generals and McCarthy, always exuding optimism, self-confidence, humor, and love of life.
Character Above All is incomparable audio, crackling with the energy and excitement of a great mind at work and the intellectual urgency befitting a topic of lasting national importance.
