    One thought on “Eisenhower at War 1943-1945”

    1. This book about Dwight D. Eisenhower's command over the Allied European Forces in World War II is unique to all others on the same topic. For the author is the grandson and namesake of that very commander*. David Eisenhower began working on his book during the Watergate controversy that brought down the presidency of his father-in-law, President Richard M. Nixon. To the younger Eisenhower, the work was a form of escapism from the problems of their facing. However, originally his book was going t [...]

    2. This book is one of my geeking-out prizes, since it's a signed copy from the presidential library, and I read it basically to say that i did, but my God, it went on FOREVER.

    3. This book was written by David Eisenhower, the grandson of the former President and attempts to explain some of the decisions that the five star general made in the execution of the European campaign during World War II. It contains considerable information, but is rather dull in its recitation of this and that, such as who visited where on what dates. Overall, I would give this a 7 on a scale of one to ten (high).

    4. A must read for WWI and WWII History lovers. Although written by his son,David, it gives the sense of balance to the complexities of one of histories most famous men.Again, well worth your time if this is a time period of interest.

    5. Amazing book. Quite quite long. I like how Ike's grandson went into private details and also the battle plans were very detailed. A must read for a WWII buff.
