Book Description:
This book presents a biographical sketch of a distinctive American icon, Dwight Eisenhower. The volume spans his early life in Kansas, West Point years and Army career in both the United States and overseas in the Philippines, Panama, and Europe. His subsequent rapid rise in rank while commanding American and Allied forces in Europe during the Second World War is then discussed. The second half of the book covers his years in the White House as America’s thirty-fourth president. This section concludes with a review of scholarly assessments of his presidency, as well as a summary of his final years spent in private life. (Imprint: Nova Press)
