5.0 out of 5 stars Eisenhower: The White House Years, October 24, 2011
By 
This review is from: Eisenhower: The White House Years (Hardcover)
"Eisenhower" is a remarkable work. The book focuses mainly upon the years Dwight Eisenhower spent in the White House, but the scope is so much broader: Jim Newton brings Eisenhower, a man I knew precious little about, to life in these pages. Once I began reading this excellent book I could not put it down.

It's hard to imagine the amount of time and the labor it takes to produce such a fine work and have it become the perfect balance of fact, humanity, history, and introspection. There is much to learn about Eisenhower the man, and when one looks across the political horizon today, we see that he is largely without peer.

Newton's book makes it clear that Eisenhower is as relevant today as he was during his life. This is a book not to be missed -- if you lived during those White House years or you did not. I personally did not, but after reading the book I wish I had.

This book is a wonderful chronicle of Eisenhower, our country, and the world, in an incredible point in history. I highly recommend it.
