Now I growl everytime I see a general's star-encrusted hat, chagrined at Eisenhower for putting his career ahead of the most important people in his life. Albert thoroughly researched her subjects, frivolous insecure Mamie, masterfully strategic Ike, and bright capabable Kay. From personal letters and other sources comes a fascinating triangle of determination, passion and duty, told from their three points of view. We may know the public history, but Albert presents a satisfactorly meatier background to the relationships.
