New York: Touchstone / Simon & Schuster. 1990. 635 pp. Numerous photographs. A condensed version of Ambrose's two-volume biography of the general who became the 34th President of the United States. 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 Eisenhower's magnificent leadership as Allied Supreme Commander. Ambrose's recounting of Eisenhower's 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 President'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, Harry Truman, Nixon, Dulles, Khrushchev, Joe McCarthy, and indeed, all the American and world leaders of his time. This superb interpretation of Eisenhower's life confirms Stephen Ambrose's position as one of our finest historians.Keywords: EISENHOWER BIOGRAPHY AMERICAN PRESIDENTS MILITARY HISTORY GOVERNMENT POLITICS STEPHEN AMBROSE Condition Notes: Wrappers rubbed, laminate just slightly coming loose from cover, a few pages dog-eared/bumped at corner.
