This new addition to Wesley Clark’s Great Generals Series features the principal architect of the Allied invasion of Europe during World War II and his relevance today.

World War II expert John Wukovits explores Dwight D. Eisenhower’s contributions to American warfare. American general and thirty-fourth president of the United States, Eisenhower led the assault on the French coast at Normandy and held together the Allied units through the European campaign that followed.

The book reveals Eisenhower’s advocacy in the pre-war years of the tank, his friendships with George Patton and Fox Conner, his service in the Philippines with Douglas MacArthur, and his culminating role as supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe. Wukovits skillfully demonstrates how Eisenhower’s evolution as a commander, his military doctrine, and his diplomatic skills are of extreme importance in understanding modern warfare.

    " Poorly written, just basic facts. But with random tangents comparing the past situation to either Iraq or Afghanistan. "

    " I listened to the audio DVD's and liked the speaker. The book was fairly easy to follow while driving and the speaked spoke well. The book wasn't amazing but it gave me a good introduction to Eisenhower and would like to read more about him. It gave me insight as to his leadership/management style. "
