A propos de cet article

637 pages, 8 plates, map endpapers, cloth, DJ, very good. 1st edition. Embossed label of the previous owner, a noted military collector. From the DJ: In this first volume of a definitive and heroic biography of the only man in the 20th century to achieve his country's highest military and civilian ranks, Stephen Ambrose brings Dwight D. Eisenhower to November 1952, when he is elected President. Ambrose, one of the editors of the Eisenhower papers, has combined a masterful story of the European war theater, and a spellbinding and surprising tale of Eisenhower as presidential candidate, with a sympathetic, admiring and realistic portrait of Eisenhower the man. This is the only full-scale biography that is based on original sources, many only very recently available, and it is the only complete account of Eisenhower'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 and, indeed, all the world leaders of his time. Professor Ambrose's biography is the product of twenty years of research, including innumerable interviews with the subject himself. N° de réf. du libraire 36967

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Dwight Eisenhower was not exactly born into poverty, but the family's circumstances were at least austere. He was one of seven children; his father, a railway worker. But the family was strong and unified, the youngsters energetic and ambitious.

Ike made it to West Point, where he excelled in sports. He was a natural leader. But it was at Leavenworth years later, as a student at the war college, that his intellectual talent showed itself. He graduated first in his class.

The author draws in a wealth of previously unpublished information to give us this beautiful portrait. As a result Eisenhower emerges as complex, one who as the author states, ". . .was a good and great man."


Definitive birth-to-death biography of President Dwight David Eisenhower.
