Draws on previously unavailable diaries, letters, and photographs to chronicle Eisenhower's private life and military and political career

From Library Journal:

Published to mark the 100th anniversary of Dwight Eisenhower's birth, this excellent summary of Ike's military and political careers also contains more than 200 photographs, many previously unpublished. Historian Beschloss does not break any new ground in his discussion or analysis, but offers a good introduction for general readers to a President whose skills and accomplishments were not fully recognized during his lifetime. (Over the past 20 years scholarly evaluations of Eisenhower's presidency have become increasingly positive.) It might also convince readers to pick up more interpretive works on Eisenhower, in particular Stephen E. Ambrose's two-volume Eisenhower ( LJ 9/1/83, 9/15/84) and Fred I. Greenstein's The Hidden-Hand Presidency: Eisenhower as Leader ( LJ 10/15/82). Recommended for public libraries.
