Pub. Date:
1st ed.
In an era when Americans are desperately seeking heroes and mentors, here is the story of how a pretty young woman from Denver meets her match in handsome Ike Eisenhower, a farm boy fresh out of West Point, and becomes the Army wife par excellence. They were two very passionate and private people whose 53-year marriage, much of it lived in the public eye, survived great tragedies, misunderstandings, and adventures -- and led to glowing triumphs in World War II and the White House. Mrs. Ike is not only a biography of a beloved American but a superb account of a complex marriage. Susan Eisenhower helps readers see her grandmother as her husband did -- a heroic and irresistible figure in her own right.
