In the first major single-volume biography of a unique American hero, "New York Times" bestselling author Korda presents a frank, ambitious, and enthralling book that explores the life and times of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
From the Publisher:
A major single-volume account of the life and career of the thirty-fourth president presents an analysis of his character as drawn from letters, diaries, historical documents, and other sources, in a volume that places his achievements against a backdrop of the twentieth century and discusses his pivotal contributions throughout World War II. 50,000 first printing.
In a biography that breaks new ground, Michael Korda presents the historical facts known about Dwight David Eisenhower, especially his stunning success in the military, while also striving to find the person who was known to many as "Ike." Korda also recalls the two-term president who led the country from war to peacetime, and faced daunting foreign and domestic issues. He deepens our appreciation of Ike through prodigiously researched and well-considered insight into Ike's family background and its significance in his life, along with generously presented stories that illuminate his character.


"With a sure touch on Ike's Kansas boyhood, marriage to Mamie, and prewar army mentors, Korda...successfully reintroduces the Eisenhower personality that was so popular privately, militarily, and politically." 06/01/2007

"In terms of style, IKE is a pleasure to read. It's filled with rich details of military strategy and descriptive character sketches of colleagues and rivals, including George Patton and Douglas MacArthur, who could have sprung from novels." - Bob Minzesheimer 08/23/2007
