Evan Thomas Explains 'Ike's Bluff'

Journalist's new biography paints Dwight D. Eisenhower as a cagey pacifist with a fistful of nukes

Veteran journalist Evan Thomas explodes the stereotype of Dwight D. Eisenhower as "Granddad in a golf cart" in a readable new biography of the 34th president, Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Battle to Save the World. Far from being "the do-nothing, platitude-spouting, syntax-mangling, over-the-hill oldest man ever to occupy the White House," writes Thomas, Eisenhower was a canny card player and master manipulator who used the threat of nuclear war to preserve world peace.
