Summary
  • Volume 1. Soldier, general of the army, President-elect, 1890-1952. "Stephen E. Ambrose draws upon extensive sources, an unprecedented degree of scholarship, and numerous interviews with Eisenhower himself to offer the fullest, richest, most objective rendering yet of the soldier who became president. He gives us a masterly account of the European war theater and Eisenhower's magnificent leadership as Allied Supreme Commander. Ambrose's recounting of Eisenhower's presidency, the first of the Cold War, brings to life a man and a country struggling with issues as diverse as civil rights, atomic weapons, communism, and a new global role. Along the way, Ambrose follows the 34th President's relations with the people closest to him, most of all Mamie, his son John, and Kay Summersby, as well as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Harry Truman, Nixon, Dulles, Khrushchev, Joe McCarthy, and indeed, all the American and world leaders of his time. This superb interpretation of Eisenhower's life confirms Stephen Ambrose's position as one of our finest historians"--Amazon.com
  • Volume 2. The President. A portrait of the man, both decent and complex, who is increasingly regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest Presidents. "Volume two of Ambrose's biography of Dwight D. Eisenhower, this one covering his years as President of the United States. A chronological account of Ike's endeavors, successes, and many frustrations during the 1950s and 1960s"--Amazon.com
