In North Africa, on the beaches at Normandy, and in the Battle of the Bulge, Dwight David Eisenhower proved himself as one of the world's greatest leaders, skilful both as a diplomat and a military strategist. In his new book, first published by Doubleday in 1970, Ambrose, who was associate editor of the general's official papers, analyses his subject's decisions. Throughout The Supreme Commander he traces the steady development of Eisenhower's generalcy, from its dramatic beginnings through to his time at the top post of Allied command.
