Patriotic Pick for January 2023
“How Ike Led”
by Susan Eisenhower
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by suggested by Grateful American™ Book Prize judge John Danielson, founder of Chartwell Education Group and former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education:
How Ike Led: The Principles Behind Eisenhower’s Biggest Decisions by Susan Eisenhower. In this affecting work about the ethics and personality of a remarkable historical figure, said the Wall Street Journal, “[Susan Eisenhower] lays bare the essence of her grandfather’s leadership in war and peace ― his singular devotion to the unity and security of the American people and the nation’s allies.”
