S 700 pages of main text focuses on Ike s role in World War II Having published several books on the European theater and a biography of Patton D Este is ideally suited to telling this story It is eavy on battles but D Este is adept at intertwining the military engagements with Ike s personal life including Cemetery Planet I his roller coaster marriage with Mamie Dowd frigid relationship withis father and only surviving son emotional entanglement with Elämän ja kuoleman kentältä – Sotarunoilija Aarni Suursalon vaikutelmia vapaussodasta his Irish driver Kay Summersby there is no evidence of a physical relationship never ending clashes withis prima donna generals and the antics of one very cute little black ScottieI came away being less impressed with Ike than I thought I would be No doubt Ike The Reluctant Heiress Lone Star Legacy had great ability charisma and commitment He faced brutally difficult decisions like D Day and daunting alliance management issues For starters Churchill was an irresistible force that reuired an immovable object like Ike De Gaulle was even vexing I think my disappointment is because D Este does not shy away from discussing Ike s personal shortcomings like a raging temper or numerous military failures Oureroes are indeed all too Les Osismes Peuple de l'Occident Gaulois human At one point Ike meets with George Marshall wondering ife still L'Europe et le mythe de l'Occident has a job only to find oute is getting another star This would not be the first or last example D Este cites of a general being promoted for failure Like Morris s TR trilogy this is a two bookmark book as many of the footnotes are fascinating A plea to publishers Why can t you put them on the actual page where they appear rather than as endnotes D Este does not use obscure words like Morris but Calvinists Incorporated Welsh Immigrants on Ohio's Industrial Frontier University of Chicago Geography Research Papers his use of military terminology and acronyms sure would benefit from a couple of explanatory pages at the outset uick Whichas soldiers a brigade or a regiment A collection of short bios would also be a The Kitchen Linens Book Using Sharing and Cherishing the Fabrics of Our Daily Lives hugeelp One final nit pick There are a number of minor errors including the first map which mixes up Morocco and Algeria In many ways D Este s tome is the perfect follow up to French s FDR and McCullough s Truman World War II looks completely different from the perspective of a war fighter than a president I also ad no idea of the complexities involved in managing the alliance with the Brits Ike spent much time with Churchill than FDR and Truman combined They each ad a Thank You God For Everything handfull of meetings Ike and Winnie met weekly for a year and at least every few weeks for two years Marshall aigh school bears Dirla tutta sul mercato globale.

Nd this biography contains none of that time period I read it to gain a better insight into Le tour du monde en uatre vingts jours him as a person the book abruptly ends with the surrender of Germany D Este does not discuss the difficulties Eisenhower faced in troop reduction in Europe not doese discuss The Iron Raven (The Iron Fey: Evenfall, his later time as Chief of Staff and then commander of NATO along with the uick ending we get no sense ofow Eisenhower really felt at the end and what The Kindest Lie his feelings were on finally being able to return to the US and I wouldave liked to Uncivil Rites have seen D Este discuss briefly Eisenhower s post war relationships with the people thate worked so closely with throughout the war Despite those things D Este deserves better than three stars simply because Ethnic Minorities and the Media Issues in Cultural and Media Studies he invested so much into this book ande made it eminently readable Eisenhower A soldier s Life was my first introduction to Carlo D Este and e didn t disappoint although I would say that e is likely not my favorite author that still is no discredit to The Best I Can Be his ability His writing flowed well and felt like a story ande really brought Ike s life alive The book itself covers between Ike s birth and youth all the way to the end of World War 2 which to me is a rather strange layout and it does not appear that Killers of the Flower Moon : Oil, Money, Murder and the Birth of the FBI he will be making a book about Eisenhowers later years in a seuel so it was kind of awkward in that sense It also strikes me as odd that there isn t written onim although I suppose there isn t nearly as much to write given Ike s military career was relatively boring so to speak and calm as Daughter of the Alien Warrior Treasured by the Alien he did not see nearly as much action as MacArthur or Patton or arguably Marshall It was also uite interesting in this book to seeow brilliant Ike really was as a soldier while also interesting after reading the biographies of MacArthur and seeing in them Fire on the Water his relationship with Ike to then see the perspective of Ike toward MacArthur and their relationship on the other foot Definitely made a reassess your opinion It was also interesting to seeow D Este subtly posed the uestion of if Ike was in fact that right man for the job to command the operations of Torch and Husky and Overlord given that Once Upon an Eid head always been an office soldier and Ten Doors Down having no real experience commanding men I personally come down on the side that while Ike may notave been as in command or authoritative or decisive as perhaps Alan Brooke or Montgomery and tended to put the British as priority over the Americans in leading operations which Patton and Marshall didn t like The Perfect Girlfriend he definitely brought a very diplomatic approach as the commander which proved to be to their benefit I did not score the bookigher not out of lack of enthusiasm for the writer and My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel his abilities but rather I felt the story kind of shifted gears at the commencement of World War 2 and D Este almost seemed toave changed is approach to the writing no longer making it as a story style but rather breaking the war down tactically at least it seemed to me which kind of slowed the book down a little D Este does a fantastic job not only capturing Eisenhower the man but also in presenting and analyzing the Western Allies struggle against the Axis and each other in World War II I admit to only reading the 350 odd pages after the Torch landings in Africa but they left we wanting to read by D Este And That S High Praise that s igh praise Well Done This is the most comprehensive and even ROMANCE handedistory of one of the greatest periods of the 20th Century A Chosen for Greatness human icing description of the man andis immediate staff Carlo D Este s Eisenhower is nothing less than a tour de force It reminded me of reading the first volume of Edmond Morris s masterful TR trilogy The only downside is that D Este s ends rather abruptly with Ike accepting Nazi Germany s surrender in May

Nhower chronicles the unlikely dramatic rise of the supreme Allied commander Beginning with the lasting effect of Eisenhower's impoverished youth bestselling biographer Carlo D'Este follows is subject through West Point and a sometimes troubled marriage; toil under MacArthur in the Philippines during the 1930s; the inner sanctums of the War Department; the general's painful North African apprenticeship; and finally the dramatic events leading to the Allied victory in May 1945 Ex. Eisenhower A Soldier s Life by Carlo D Este was published in 2002 and remains one of the most freuently read books on the thirty fourth president D Este is a biographer a military Duty historian and a retired Lt Colonel in the US Army He is best known foris critically acclaimed biography Patton A Genius for War Excellent in many respects D Este s biography of Eisenhower is regrettably not comprehensive Its scope extends from Ike s birth only through mid 1945 the end of WWII in Europe and therefore misses not only 僕のヒーローアカデミア 21 his two term presidency but alsois service as Army Chief of Staff and NATO Supreme CommanderThe fifty five years of Eisenhower s life which D Este does cover are Dreamland. Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep handled with considerable skill from both a literary and analytical perspective Andis treatment of these years is extremely thorough with 705 pages of text and than 100 pages of end notesThe first alf of the biography up through is move to Europe in 1942 is nothing short of fantastic These 300 pages provide the reader with an incredibly revealing look at Eisenhower s childhood as well as a surprisingly colorful and comprehensible review of The Princes Scandalous Wedding Vow his otherwise tedious thirty year military career preceding World War IIHardly a paragraph and never a page passes by without a deeply relevant or particularly insightful observation or conclusion A complete biography as good as these thirty chapters would undoubtedly rate among the top five or six presidential biographies I ve ever readThe secondalf of D Este s biography covers Eisenhower s military service in Europe beginning with Thru Hiking Will Break Your Heart his command of operations in North Africa in 1942 Far an operational analysis of the war than a biography these chapters are always informative and often interestingbut attention is freuently diverted away from the main character in favor of tactical and strategic mattersMany events outside Eisenhower s sphere are discussed extensively but never linked to Eisenhower in a meaningful way Yet critical figures who do not directly interact with Ike freuently such as FDR rarely appear at all Students of militaryistory will find this portion of the book fascinating and possibly invaluable but Eisenhower is sometimes lost in the fog of war both literally and figurativelyOn the whole D Este s treatment of Women's Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle his subject is positive but judicious He is rarely reluctant to censure Ike foris Telecommunications Network Design Algorithms hot temper lack of warmth towardis family or The Power of the Internet in China his inexplicable lack of strategic and tactical vision on the battlefield But the author sandling of the Kay Summersby topic is curious Fundamentals of Federal Income Taxation, 19th (University Casebook Series) he largely absolves Ike but is far too defensive in the process and Mamie Eisenhower feels remarkably one dimensionalOverall Carlo D Este is demonstrably a skilled militaryistorian and an excellent biographer Eisenhower A Soldier s Life is a great biography of the first 52 years of Ike s life followed by a compelling analysis of the European theatre during World War II It is unfortunate D Este was unable to pursue Eisenhower through is presidency as a result this book proves no or less than an invaluable study of Eisenhower s early years and an informative review of is military careerOverall rating 4
