about this book

Bestselling historian Stephen E. Ambrose examines the war leadership of Dwight D. Eisenhower and his relationships with leaders like Churchill, Roosevelt, and de Gaulle and generals like Montgomery and Patton.

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, skillful both as a diplomat and a military strategist. Ambrose, who was associate editor of the general's official papers, analyzes his subject's decisions in The Supreme Commander, which Doubleday first published in 1970. Throughout the book Ambrose traces the steady development Eisenhower's generalcy—from its dramatic beginnings through his time at the top post of Allied command.

"General Dwight Eisenhower comes remarkably alive." —The New York Times Book Review
