The decision was made to appeal to a higher authority: the great Eisenhower biographer, Stephen Ambrose. The editor consulted him. I can still remember the letter from Ambrose that the editor triumphantly - sorry, I meant sorrowfully - showed me. It amounted to Ambrose's full imprimatur. The biographer expressed his own personal outrage that his hero could have been guilty of such a terrible act.

The world needed a better Eisenhower biographer than this, and the cumulative efforts of the above-mentioned four writers represent the attempt to provide it. I've read just one of the four, Jean Edward Smith's.

Eisenhower Biography: Military General and U.S

The world needed a better Eisenhower biographer than this, and the cumulative efforts of the above-mentioned four writers represent the attempt to provide it. I've read just one of the four, Jean Edward Smith's.

Eisenhower was the antithesis of a culture warrior. The first Republican to run strongly in the South, he spoke and thought of the American nation always as a unity. One comes away from this book feeling again the absurdity of the proposed Frank Gehry monument to Eisenhower in Washington, D.C. That monument presents Eisenhower, among other things, as a simple Kansas farm boy. A simple man is just what Eisenhower was not. He was a man of guile and maneuver - guile and maneuver inspired, fortunately for us all, by a deep commitment to peace and social stability. Now to read some of those other Eisenhower biographies. Now for the historical profession to come to a deeper reckoning with the doubtful legacy of Stephen Ambrose's library of works.
