This definitive, sympathetic, objective and sometimes critical work is the culmination of twenty years of research by one of the editors of the Eisenhower Papers. Drew Middleton in The New York Times praised the first volume as the most complete and objective work yet on the general who became President.With this first volume of a life of Eisenhower, Stephen E. Ambrose, a historian at the University of New Orleans, takes the lead in reassessment. Ambrose has mined the vast library of papers well. It cannot have been easy work: Eisenhower was nearly as reticent about his private and interior life as George Washington. Volume One crosses the long span of years from Eisenhowers birth to his election as president . . .The advantage of a life study is that we get to see the man. --Richard Rhodes, Bookworld
