If one looks for what Eisenhower thought when he lived through some of the most interesting periods of modern history when he was at the centre of things, this is not the place to look. More time is spent over his frustrations with MacArthur while in the Philippines before the war, or about small-p political issues during his presidency, than going over how he faced the real challenges of war and, as president, peace. Much more was expected from a great statesman.

Not nearly as interesting as the Reagan diaries (mainly because Ike only made occasional entries and often times was reticent in putting down on paper his personal feelings about people) but nonetheless a worthwhile read.
