“In his highly readable and concise style, John Wukovits has once again succeeded in packing a wealth of information into a single volume on the life of one of the greatest soldier-statesmen in history. He conveys the strength of character and innate leadership of Dwight Eisenhower in a manner which will captivate the reader.” Michael E. Haskew, editor, WWII History Magazine
“John Wukovits now offers a concise portrayal of the commander who served as the chief architect of D-Day and the campaign in northwest Europe.” Cole C. Kingseed, colonel, US Army (Ret.)
“Wukovits gives us a portrait of a general who devised and sustained a broad-front strategy that led to Germany's unconditional surrender, and a man who never took his eyes off the prize.” Star-Ledger
“With his depth of research, insightful approach, and clarity of style, the author and military historian John Wukovits has managed to put a human face on one of the twentieth-century’s greatest figures and turn an historical icon into a flesh-and-blood human being.” Flint Whitlock, author of The Fighting First: The Untold Story of the Big Red One on D-Day
