Supreme Commander : The War Years of Dwight D. Eisenhower Paperback
In North Africa, on the beaches at Normandy, and in the Battle of the Bulge, Dwight David Eisenhower proved himself as one of the world's greatest leaders, skilful both as a diplomat and a military strategist.
In his new book, first published by Doubleday in 1970, Ambrose, who was associate editor of the general's official papers, analyses his subject's decisions.
Throughout Supreme Commander he traces the steady development of Eisenhower's generalcy, from its dramatic beginnings through to his time at the top post of Allied command. About the AuthorStephen E. Ambrose wrote twenty books on military affairs and foreign policy.
Early in his career he was an associate editor of The Eisenhower Papers, and he later went on to publish the definitive, three-part biography of Eisenhower, as well as many bestselling books of military history, including Band of Brothers and Undaunted Courage.
He died in 2002.
