Biography: Dwight D. Eisenhower: Commander-In-Chief

Biography: Dwight D. Eisenhower: Commander-In-Chief Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* An authoritative, feature-length profile of one of the most important men of the 20th century. * Features interviews with Senator John McCain, General Wesley Clark, Sam Donaldson, George Will, Tom Brokaw, General Barry McCaffrey, Senator Bob Dole, David Eisenhower, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Susan Eisenhower, Mary Jane Eisenhower, Walter Cronkite and many others.

Synopsis:

He was a boy from Abilene who grew up to command the largest fighting force ever assembled. He rode his military accomplishments all the way to the White House.

Dwight D. Eisenhower ran for President with one of the most direct and effective messages in the history of politics: "I Like Ike." This simple slogan belies the complexity of the man behind it: people did like Ike, but they didn't know him nearly as well as they thought they did. Going beyond the broad strokes that have long defined his public image, BIOGRAPHY® probes the complexities of Eisenhower's personality, details his extraordinary military career and reflects on his time as President, where he was sometimes dismissed as a do-nothing but in fact pushed forcefully and effectively for major change in the country. Recordings capture Eisenhower's own words, and the recollections of dozens of friends, colleagues, family members and political insiders add rich dimension to this multi-faceted portrait.

Synopsis:

Follow Ike from his Abilene boyhood to his days as Supreme Allied Commander, and finally to this legendary tenure at the White House.
