Summary:

In this third installment of the Great Generals series, WWII expert John Wukovits explores Dwight D. Eisenhower's contributions to American warfare. Eisenhower led the assault on the French coast at Normandy and held together the Allied units through the European campaign that followed. Wukovits follows Eisenhower's advocacy of the tank in the pre-war years, 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. He skillfully demonstrates how Eisenhower's evolution as a commander, his military doctrine, and his diplomatic skills are crucial to the understanding of modern warfare.

    Interesting but very pro Ike. Obviously written by an Ikeinphile. .I would have liked more balance, i.e. From Monte's or Patton's point of view. Through out the narration the narrator repeated himself over long segments of narration. Annoying.
