EISENHOWER: A SOLDIER'S LIFE, by Carlo d'Este
An accomplished writer of World War II histories has created this new (2002)extremely well-researched biography of Eisenhower, tracing his life from his early days in Abilene to the end of World War II.
Eisenhower's major accomplishments are already well known to students of World War II history; but this magnificent book provides many new, interesting, and illuminating details. An example: in July 1943, Eisenhower traveled to the battle area in Sicily by embarking on the British destroyer HMS Petard. When the ship came under fire from a Nazi shore battery, Eisenhower remained on the weather deck observing the combat until the ship's crew literally forced him to take cover.
Many books have already been written about General Eisenhower, but this new book may become the best of them. 836 pages. Softcover.
