“[With Wings Like Eagles is] bold and refreshing… Korda writes with great elegance and flair.”—Wall Street Journal

Editorial Reviews

?Michael Korda?s Ike is a clear-eyed, grand-scale biography that does much more than tell the remarkable life-story of Dwight D. Eisenhower.Written with great vitality and a broad understanding of both military history and human nature, it is a powerful reminder of the almost unimaginable magnitude of World War II and that Eisenhower, in his crucial role in the struggle, proved, exactly when needed, to be one of the most important, genuinely laudable Americans ever.Korda?s deft portrayals of Churchill, Roosevelt, George C. Marshall and Douglas MacArthur are superb.There are illuminating details and anecdotes aplenty.But it is Eisenhower as Supreme Commander and later as president, who provides a vivid lesson in leadership at just the moment when leadership is of such paramount importance to the nation and the world.? (David McCullough)
