Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Battle to Save the World by Evan Thomas


Upon assuming the presidency in 19five3, Dwight Eisenhower got here to be observed by means of many as a doddering lightweight. yet behind the bland smile and apparent simplemindedness was once an excellent, intellectual tactician. As Evan Thomas reveals in his provocative exam of Ikecff0478#39;s White area years, Eisenhower was once a master of calculated duplicity. As along with his bridge and poker video games he was once eventually compelled to prevent enjoying after leaving too many fellow army officials bancrupt, Ike may well be patient and ruthless in the con, and beneficiant and expedient in his partnerships. facing the Soviet Union, China, and his personal generals, a few of whom believed a first strike was once the only way of survival, Eisenhower would make his boldest and riskiest guess yet, one of such enormity that there may well be but two outcomes: the survival of the arena, or its finish.
