Crusade in Europe
Crusade in Europe
By Dwight D. Eisenhower
Doubleday, 1948, 559 pp.

Some of the qualities that made Eisenhower a great commander of coalition forces -- modesty, tact, humanity -- are evident in these memoirs of his service in the recent war. Though he steadfastly sought to avoid politics, he was inevitably involved in important political decisions on which he has some interesting things to say. Most of his narrative, however, is about high strategy and the manner in which victory was organized in the west.
