Publisher's Summary

From the author of Plain Speaking and Lyndon, the best-selling biographies of Harry S. Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson, comes an intimate and unconventional portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower, America’s most beloved warrior.   

Bringing together thousands of hours of interviews with the men and women who were closest to him, Merle Miller has constructed a revealing and personal biography of the man who would become the supreme commander. Follow from his childhood in Kansas, to West Point, World War I, and Europe as he led the Allied Forces to a hard-won victory in World War II, as Ike the Soldier goes behind the historic battles and into the heart and mind of Ike Eisenhower.  

Miller has crafted the defining biography on the life of the 34th president, bringing more depth to the man many thought they knew. His strained relationships with his father, brothers, and son are brought into focus, as well as his love affair with his wife, Mamie, and his relationship with Kay Summersby - his driver turned companion and confidante during WWII.
