This was a good read. It details what Dwight D. Eisenhower's life was like growing up in Abilene, Kansas from age 2yrs- 20yrs. The Endnote gives a brief (2pg) description of his life after this age. Where he goes to college, where he was stationed while in the Army, what he did during both WWI and WWII and his rise to political power as president of the United States.
