  • Ike recommendation

    I'm thinking of getting my hands on a good book on Eisenhower during the war years (doesn't have to be limited to that) that is not full of BS. I'd like a book that is well researched.
    Any recommendations please.

    Start with Eisenhower's book Crusade in Europe, it will give you a good insight into the man.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

        Eisenhower

        I really enjoyed Eisenhower by Geoffey Perret. I thought it to be a very well researched and well written. I had also read Mr.Korda's book on Ike but I didn't think it was anywhere near as good as Mr.Perret's biography.

          If you are interested in Ike's relations with the British, that is covered in John A Adams' book "The Battle For Western Europe, Fall 1944". I just finished it.

            For me the most attention grabbing book to gain insights on Ike is Russell F. Weigley's Eisenhower's Lieutenants: The Campaign of France and Germany, 1944-1945. Wiegley knows his craft and subject, Prof of History, Temple University also authored History of the United States Army and The American Way of War.
