After President Dwight D. Eisenhower left the White House in 1961, he returned to his farm in Gettysburg, where he spent the last eight years of his life. This poignant memoir was written by the two living people who perhaps knew him best: his grandson David Eisenhower and his daughter-in-law Julie Nixon Eisenhower. Going Home To Glory shows that America's beloved "Ike" was no doddering retiree; he kept busy with major memoir-writing projects and maintained an active critical interest in political and foreign policy developments. Even while discussing international crises though, this memoir never relinquishes its deeply personal sense of Eisenhower the man.
