: 265 pages / 500 illustrations **** In the pantheon of American “heroes,” few men stand as high as Dwight D. Eisenhower – commonly referred to as simply “Ike.” The great Supreme Allied Commander General Eisenhower, as the fable goes, defeated the “Nazis” and saved Europe. Years later, as the 34th President of the United States of America, the grandfatherly Eisenhower led America through a period of peace and prosperity while strongly containing the dark forces of international communism. Hence the lasting political slogan based upon Irving Berlin’s catchy jingle of the 1950’s, “I Like Ike!” Like most of the biographies of the “great men” of the 20th century, the myth of Eisenhower, spread by charlatan court-historians such as the late Stephen Ambrose, is just that – a myth. As a military tactician, Ike the desk-general was barely competent. Blood-thirsty and brutal? Yes. Capable? Not really -- unless we regard the victories that he had handed to Soviet tyrant Joe Stalin as being the result of purposeful planning rather than accidental. More on that subject, later on. The real military victories of that misunderstood war for Globalism and Communism were achieved by superior field leaders such as Generals Patton, Clark, Bradley, Montgomery and various Soviet generals. As a politician, the Republican president was as much of a two-faced “progressive” scoundrel as his equally puffed-up predecessors, Democrats Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman, albeit less brazen, less bombastic, and more likable than either. This is not surprising when one realizes, as this book will demonstrate, that FDR, Truman and “Ike” worked for the same shadowy bosses. For those reasons, and so many others, your author here begs to differ with the “conventional wisdom” about Eisenhower, and is proud to declare: “I Don’t Like Ike!” – And nor should any other decent human being like him either.
