Review from Goodreads:
My Three Years with Eisenhower could have been written only by the man who lived with Dwight D. Eisenhower day and night; who acted as his friend and confidant; whose duties ranged from opening the General’s car door to handling such ticklish jobs as the battle between General Patton and Sergeant Bill Mauldin; who saw Dwight Eisenhower, in his intimate day by day life, develop from a relatively unknown staff officer to the Commander of the greatest military operation in all history. (…)
For this book is a new kind of history, a backstage account of the movements of the most important actors in the greatest drama ever played. It is a unique combination of intense human interest and grand strategy, providing countless intimate glimpses of the key members of the Allied family, their relations with each other, their private and hitherto unpublished views on the greatest questions of the era, their human failings and their essential greatness.
