New at CARL: Ike an American Hero

Check our holdings at CARL- Ike: an American Hero by Michael Korda

Summary:"In this first major single-volume biography of Dwight D. Eisenhower to appear in many years, Michael Korda, the author of Ulysses S. Grant, paints a full-length portrait of not the smiling, amiable Ike of legend but the real man: a daring, gifted, courageous, superlatively trained, and tough-minded soldier, a perfectionist with a hair-trigger temper (mostly held under precarious control) who was perhaps the most successful leader of a multinational coalition in all history."
