        Starred review from October 24, 2011
        Except for FDR, Eisenhower was the 20th century’s “most successful president,” says Smith. After delivering this jolt, Smith, senior history scholar at Columbia (and winner of a Francis Parkman Prize for FDR) makes a reasonable case in this long but always engrossing biography. Eisenhower (1890–1969) spent 16 years as a major in the hidebound pre-WWII army, but the people who mattered (FDR, generals MacArthur and Marshall) recognized his talent. Smith describes a man who commanded the largest coalition army in history without grandiloquent posturing, feuds with superiors, or favoritism to certain egotistical subordinates who responded by disparaging his leadership. As president (1953–1960), Smith credits Eisenhower with leading Republicans away from their isolationist past, keeping the peace, and leaving office more popular than any successor. Ironically, no Republican candidate today would dare praise the legacy of this “progressive conservative” who slashed the military budget, opposed tax cuts, resisted evil (in this case communism) without going to war, and supported Social Security and federal aid programs. Warts turn up, but Smith portrays a genuinely admirable Eisenhower: smart, congenial, unpretentious, and no ideologue. Despite competing biographies from Ambrose, Perret, and D’Este, this is the best. Photos, maps.

      • content: Paul Hecht's accomplished voice brings to life the story of our 34th president. Smith's magisterial biography presents the strengths of a man who advanced from near poverty through the ranks of the U.S. Army and eventually became president of the United States. The author also explores Ike's all-too-human weaknesses. The few times Hecht delivers additional character voices, he does so with aplomb. While his steady cadence is interrupted by an unnecessary number of long pauses, they only slightly detract from this fascinating story. Since the audiobook lacks the supplemental materials that are part of the printed version, listeners may find themselves lost on the battlefields of WWII. But that shouldn't dissuade one from listening to this engaging life story. M.L.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine
