Booklist Review

Gr. 1^-3. In this appealing volume from the Picture Book Biography series, Adler presents the life of Dwight David Eisenhower. Beginning with a triumphant 1945 parade in New York City, the narrative shifts to overviews of his Kansas childhood, love of sports, West Point career, marriage, family life, service in WW I, leadership in WW II, accomplishments as president, and his death. Good black-and-white photos appear throughout the book. Appendixes include a chronology, author's notes, a selected source bibliography, and a list of pertinent Web sites. A clear, straightforward introduction to Eisenhower. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-Rather than beginning with Eisenhower's birth, Adler opens with a description of the June 19, 1945, parade in New York City at which the general was given a medal naming him "the victorious Commander in Chief of Allied Armies in defense of human liberty." The book adequately explores his youth and family life, acceptance to West Point, and marriage. There is little about the president's army career. Throughout, Adler praises Eisenhower's accomplishments; thus, the book lacks balance. However, for the most part, his story is well told and interesting. Many of the black-and-white photographs have been used in other biographies, but they have been well chosen, and their placement and size do much to flesh out the book.-Barbara Buckley, Rockville Centre Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
