    Carlo D Este is a wonderful World War II Biographer and this book is just another fine example of that I would encourage anyone with an interest in Dwight Eisenhower to read this.

  3. Aaron Million Aaron Million says:

    D Este writes an exhaustive biography of Eisenhower up to the end of the European theater of WWII in May 1945 Clearly, he spent many years working on this massive tome Exquisite detail is evident throughout the book, starting with the background of Eisenhower s father, David, continuing through Eisenhower s youth and his often contentious relationships with his several brothers, on through his years at West Point, then his glacially slow ris

  4. Todd Todd says:

    A good, thorough and impartial biography of Eisenhower The book focuses on his career as a soldier and military leader and thus ends immediately following the signing of the armistice in Europe I m tempted to say that, as a biography, this book isn t as good as D Este s definitive work on Patton But I m not sure it would be a fair comparison, Patton was such a mercurial figure, both grandly heroic and tragic It seems easier to reach conc...

  8. Steven Peterson Steven Peterson says:

    This massive biography of Dwight Eisenhower, focusing on his life up until World War II s end 705 pages of text , is a major investment of time but well worth it A major strength of this work is the nuanced analysis of Ike, both his strengths and his weaknesses He had many flaws, but he also had certain character traits that served the nation and the allies well The author says of Eisenhower page 5 The path from the poverty of turn of the century Abilene,

  9. Hugh Ashton Hugh Ashton says:

    It would seem that it is hard to write a biography of Eisenhower He was a professional soldier, albeit a very ambitious one, with the professional soldier s wish to remain out of the public eye Much of this biography is based on reports by others, their diaries and memoirs intended for public consumption, and therefore necessarily self serving and not necessarily reliable.What remains is the story of a most remarkable man, who hardly heard a shot fired in ang

  10. William William says:

    Eisenhower by Carlo D Este comes in second to his earlier work, Patton, but this I blame on the subject,not the author Patton was a pretty crazy, outgoing guy who wrote a lot and never kept secret his contempt for others Eisenhower always kept it inside This made him hard to read as a person D Este interviews family members to find outabout dad Grown up kids really fill in this void well, as they can add a layer of understanding once they achieve grown up perspe
