Críticas:

"Magisterial."--"The New York Times"

"[A] fine new biography . . . [Eisenhower's] White House years need a more thorough exploration than many previous biographers have given them. Smith, whose long, distinguished career includes superb one-volume biographies of Grant and Franklin Roosevelt, provides just that.""--The Washington Post"

"Highly readable . . . [Smith] shows us that [Eisenhower's] ascent to the highest levels of the military establishment had much more to do with his easy mastery of politics than with any great strategic or tactical achievements."--"The""Wall Street Journal"

"Always engrossing . . . Smith portrays a genuinely admirable Eisenhower: smart, congenial, unpretentious, and no ideologue. Despite competing biographies from Ambrose, Perret, and D'Este, this is the best."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"No one has written so heroic a biography [on Eisenhower] as this year's "Eisenhower in War and Peace" [by] Jean Edward Smith."--"The National Interest"
" "
"Dwight Eisenhower, who was more cunning than he allowed his adversaries to know, understood the advantage of being underestimated. Jean Edward Smith demonstrates precisely how successful this stratagem was. Smith, America's greatest living biographer, shows why, now more than ever, Americans should like Ike."--George F. Will

Reseña del editor:

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY
The Christian Science Monitor - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Magisterial."--The New York Times


In this extraordinary volume, Jean Edward Smith presents a portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower that is as full, rich, and revealing as anything ever written about America's thirty-fourth president. Here is Eisenhower the young dreamer, charting a course from Abilene, Kansas, to West Point and beyond. Drawing on a wealth of untapped primary sources, Smith provides new insight into Ike's maddening apprenticeship under Douglas MacArthur. Then the whole panorama of World War II unfolds, with Eisenhower's superlative generalship forging the Allied path to victory. Smith also gives us an intriguing examination of Ike's finances, details his wartime affair with Kay Summersby, and reveals the inside story of the 1952 Republican convention that catapulted him to the White House.
Smith's chronicle of Eisenhower's presidential years is as compelling as it is comprehensive. Derided by his detractors as a somnambulant caretaker, Eisenhower emerges in Smith's perceptive retelling as both a canny politician and a skillful, decisive leader. He managed not only to keep the peace, but also to enhance America's prestige in the Middle East and throughout the world.
Unmatched in insight, Eisenhower in War and Peace at last gives us an Eisenhower for our time--and for the ages.

Descripción Random House. 1 Paperback(s), 2012. soft. Estado de conservación: New. Following his Francis Parkman Prize–winning biography FDR and his Pulitzer Prize finalist Grant, historian Jean Edward Smith gives us a portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower as rich and revealing as anything ever written about our 34th president. Here is Ike the young dreamer, leaving Abilene, Kansas, for West Point; his maddening apprenticeship under Douglas MacArthur; and the whole panorama of World War II, with Eisenhower's superlative generalship. Smith offers intriguing details of Ike's finances, his wartime affair with Kay Summersby, and the 1952 Republican convention that catapulted him to the White House, and chronicles his canny presidency, in which he managed not only to keep the peace, but also to enhance America's prestige in the Middle East and throughout the world. "[Eisenhower's] White House years need a more thorough exploration than many previous biographers have given them. Smith, whose long, distinguished career includes superb one-volume biographies of Grant and Franklin Roosevelt, provides just that."—Washington Post"Smith portrays a genuinely admirable Eisenhower: smart, congenial, unpretentious, and no ideologue.
