Reviews

"A concise biography of the five-star general and two-term president."-- USA Today, a "New and Noteworthy" pick "Johnson deftly sketches Eisenhower's political profile . . . Inviting."
-- The Boston Globe
"[E]ssential rather than exhaustive. Johnson gives the basic facts, but always with the aim of illustrating a salient point about Ike's character. . . . [Eisenhower] looks better than ever."
-- The Denver Post

"An ideal primer for novices or those looking to brush up on America's thirty-fourth president . . . a satisfying snapshot of a life dedicated to public service."
-- Booklist "Accomplished historian and biographer Johnson . . . covers all the major facets of Eisenhower's career, beginning with his boyhood in rural Kansas and ending with his tenure as president of the United States . . . with an emphasis on his personality and character, including his flair for public relations. Johnson's contribution will serve as a great introduction to 'Ike' the man."
--Publishers Weekly "[An] admiring, opinionated account by veteran British journalist and historian Johnson. Johnson astutely points out that Eisenhower enjoyed being president since, unlike generals Washington, Jackson and Grant, his best qualities were not those of a warrior but a staff officer: efficiency, administration, economy and flexibility."
--Kirkus "[T]he life of Dwight David Eisenhower was one of steady, uninterrupted success -- five-star general, supreme commander of Allied Forces in Europe during World War II, 34th president of the United States, elected twice, both times by landslides, and still popular when he left office. . . . His critics, Johnson writes, got things exactly wrong . . . [A] genuine leader, Eisenhower did not insinuate. He issued commands. He led from above."
-- Philadelphia Inquirer
