Michael Korda Ike

New York Times bestselling author Michael Korda‘s books include Horse People, Country Matters, Ulysses S. Grant, and Charmed Lives. Korda discusses his new biography Ike. This big, ambitious, and enthralling new biography of Dwight D. Eisenhower is full of fascinating details and anecdotes, which place particular emphasis on his brilliant generalship and leadership in World War Two. It also provides, with the advantage of hindsight, a far more acute analysis of Ike’s character and personality than any that has previously been available, reaching the conclusion that he was perhaps America’s greatest general and one of America’s best presidents, a man who won the war and thereafter kept the peace.

    I finished reading Ike today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Mr. Korda writes in a very readable, conversational style. And I gained tremendous insight into the character of Dwight Eisenhower, who was president when I was a small boy. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in mid-20th Century America.

  2. Ike An American Hero. One word for it; Outstanding!
