From the Publisher"In his highly readable and concise style, John Wukovits has once again succeeded in packing a wealth of information into a single volume on the life of one of the greatest soldier-statesmen in history. He conveys the strength of character and innate leadership of Dwight Eisenhower in a manner which will captivate the reader."—Michael E. Haskew, Editor, WWII History Magazine
"With his depth of research, insightful approach, and clarity of style, the author and military historian John Wukovits has managed to put a human face on one of the 20th century's greatest figures and turn an historical icon into a flesh-and-blood human being. One comes away from this book feeling as if Ike is a friend, not just a legend."—Flint Whitlock, author of The Fighting First: The Untold Story of the Big Red One on D-Day
"Wukovits' book is excellently researched but his greatest merit as an historian is a rare ability to make the past a real living thing. This book is a special pleasure to read, for it is peopled by real figures the reader can understand and care about. Eisenhower is not cast as the Olympian figure he is too often made out to be. A superior history of an intensely human man."—Robert Barr Smith, Colonel, USA (ret)
"Wukovits gives us a portrait of a general who devised and sustained a broad-front strategy that led to Germany's unconditional surrender, and a man who never took his eyes off the prize."—Jonathan E. Lazarus, The Star-Ledger.
"[Wukovits] makes a rather profound general comment on the acts of heroism that won the battle."—Jon Guttman, American History
"John Wukovits now offers a concise portrayal of the commander who served as the chief architect of D-Day and the campaign in northwest Europe."—Col. Cole C. Kingseed, USA Ret., ARMY
