'In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory! Good luck!' With these words, on 6 June 1944, Supreme Commander General Dwight Eisenhower sent his troops to liberate Nazi-occupied France. Eisenhower was one of outstanding leaders of the twentieth century. As a soldier, he was decisive, disciplined, courageous and popular with his men, thus commanding the victorious D-Day landings. As President, he was a leader who made peace in Korea and kept the peace thereafter, a statesman who safely guided the free world through one of the most dangerous decades of the Cold War. He was the only president of the twentieth century who managed to preside over eight years of peace and prosperity. Drawn from numerous interviews with Eisenhower himself, and peopled with such eminent figures as Roosevelt, Churchill, de Gaulle, Nixon and Khruschev, EISENHOWER: SOLDIER AND PRESIDENT brings to life an incomparable leader. From bestselling historian Stephen E. Ambrose, this is the fullest, richest, most objective rendering yet of the soldier who became president.
