Eisenhower: Soldier and President (The Renowned One-Volume Life) by Stephen E. Ambrose

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 Eisenhowers magnificent leadership as Allied Supreme Commander. Ambroses recounting of Eisenhowers 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 Presidents 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 Eisenhowers life confirms Stephen Ambroses position as one of our finest historians.
