From Publishers Weekly
In this admiring and enormously readable revision/condensation of his acclaimed two-volume biography, published in 1983 and 1984, Ambrose reminds us that this "great and good man" was the most successful general of the greatest war ever fought and the only president of this century to preside over eight years of peace and prosperity. Tracing Eisenhower's family background, education, military and political careers, and influence as elder statesman, the author chronicles Eisenhower's triumphs and failures and at the same time provides a vivid picture of the off-duty Ike. As Allied Supreme Commander, he is revealed once again as a coalition leader of extraordinary ability (and "an intensely alive human being who enjoyed his job immensely"). As our 34th president, he was a statesman who guided the free world through...

The Presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower
Chester J. Pach
0700604367
Jan 1991
(Hardcover) - Revised Ed.
·
 
Book Description
The focus of this revision is not how Eisenhower made policy, but how his decisions shaped American life in the 1950s and beyond. In this first post-revisionist study of the Eisenhower presidency, historian Chester Pach reaches beyond the issues the revisionists raised: Was Eisenhower in command of his own administration? Did he play a significant role in shaping foreign and domistic policy? Drawing on the wide range of works published within the past decade, Pach expands Elmo Richardson's 1979 study by nearly one third. In addition to new material on national security policy, Pach deepens the analysis of Eisenhower's leadership and managerial style and explores the significance of the decisions Eisenhower made on a whole range of critical issues, from civil rights to atomic testing. By emphasizing the fundamental...

From Library Journal
This audio version of Eisenhower's World War II experiences is a long but exciting and intriguing memoir. Reader Michael Prichard's pleasant voice adds to the experience of learning about the war from the perspective of one of its chief participants - the Supreme Allied Commander. As commander of the European Theater of Operations, Eisenhower knew firsthand what he was up against, and he shares his feelings here. His personal accounts of military tactics; his reaction to victory and defeat on the battlefield; his political dealings with other allied commanders and politicos; and his relationship with his own staff - including the colorful and controversial George S. Patton - are just some of the areas the listener is exposed to in this comprehensive work. There is also D-Day, the African campaign, the...

Book Review
"I have been in politics ... most of my adult life. There's no more active political organization in the world than the armed forces of the United States." So said Dwight Eisenhower, the subject of journalist-novelist Tom Wicker's thoughtful--and often critical--Dwight D. Eisenhower, shortly after leaving the presidency.

Eisenhower was never above politics, as his admirers claimed; Wicker shows that he was a political creature through and through, as Patton suspected while serving under him in World War II. ("Ike wants to be president so badly you can taste it," Patton said.) He held all the contradictory positions of a politician, too: a dedicated cold warrior and anti-Communist, he famously decried the power of the "military-industrial complex," resisted American involvement in Vietnam while setting the stage for it, and...

Review
"Admirable... The material that Holt and Leyerzapf present from Eisenhower's personal and official correspondence and diaries provides considerable insight into and explanation for his later success, in both the military and politics. Significantly, Eisenhower: The Prewar Diaries and Selected Papers, 1905-1941 dispels -- once and for all -- the lingering myth that Eisenhower's spectacular rise to supreme commander during World War II was somehow a fluke, or that he was politically naive when he became president in 1952... A superb book that is a major contribution to our knowledge of Dwight Eisenhower... A fascinating examination of the least known years of Eisenhower's military career and is highly recommended." -- Carlo W. D'Este, Journal of Military History
"This volume adds greatly to our understanding of Eisenhower's...

Victors: Eisenhower and His Boys: The Men of World War II
Stephen E. Ambrose

Book Review
The Victors is like a compilation of Stephen E. Ambrose's greatest hits, drawing heavily from his biography of General Dwight D. Eisenhower and several military histories that recount the events of the Allied push across the European continent in 1944 and 1945 from the frontline trooper's perspective. The narrative is vintage Ambrose, full of engaging yet workmanlike prose that conveys the epic scope of its subject while paying careful attention to the details of the often inglorious lives of the GIs. Eisenhower looms large over this book, but it's the ordinary soldiers and their experiences who give the story real life. Readers who have already dipped into the Ambrose library may find sections of The Victors redundant, but for those who want an adept overview of what Ike and his men accomplished, this is a great place to...
