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
