A bona-fide American hero at the close of World War II, General Dwight Eisenhower rode an enormous wave of popularity into the Oval Office seven years later. Though we may view the Eisenhower years through a hazy lens of 1950s nostalgia, historians consider his presidency one of the least successful. At home there was civil rights unrest, McCarthyism, and a deteriorating economy; internationally, the Cold War was deepening. But despite his tendency toward brinksmanship, Ike would later be revered for keeping the peace. Still, his actions and policies at the onset of his career, covered by Tom Wicker, would haunt Americans of future generations. Download and start listening now!

    " Seems as if Ike did nothing great but did not let anything bad happen either. Wicker seems down on Ike as politician but likes him as a natural leader. Only addresses eight years of presidency, and has increased my interest in reading more on Ike to get a second opinion. "

    " Not bad, not great. Some would say good. "
