B126 – Military Commander Eisenhower / By E.K.G. Sixsmith

An account of the abilities and accomplishments of a great soldier can usually show how he earned his apprenticeship under fire and how in lesser tasks he showed those qualities which marked him out for the ultimate responsibilities of high command.  Not so with Eisnehower:  he was, so to speak, thrown in at the deep end before he had even learnt to paddle.  An orthodox biography.  Paperback, pp 248.
