Riassunto: The war leadership of Dwight D. Eisenhower and his relationships with Churchill, Roosevelt, and de Gaulle and generals Montgomery and Patton In North Africa, on the beaches at Normandy, and in the Battle of the Bulge, Dwight David Eisenhower proved himself as one of the world's greatest leaders, skilful both as a diplomat and a military strategist.

Throughout The Supreme Commander he traces the steady development of Eisenhower's generalcy, from its dramatic beginnings through to his time at the top post of Allied command.
