Eisenhower: Allied Supreme Commander (Cassell Military Paperbacks)

Carlo D'Este's previous book, PATTON cemented his reputation as one of the bestselling historians of the Second World War. John Keegan called it 'a magnificent portrait'. The Sunday Telegraph called it 'superb biography'. Now he turns to America's most successful commander of the war, the future president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Born in poverty, the child of convinced pacifists, Eisenhower rose to command the Allied invasion force from D-Day to the conquest of Germany. He remains a controversial figure, especially to the British. Eisenhower had a prickly relationship with his most notorious subordinate, the British General Montgomery. As well as the key military issues, D'Este reveals the truth about Eisenhower's alleged romance with his British driver, Kay Summersby, his troubled marriage and his eye for the political future. This is the definitive biography of the most important officer in the Allied armies of the Second World War.
