Inhaltsangabe: After President Dwight D. Eisenhower left office in 1961, he retired to a farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Living next door was his teenage grandson, David; they would be neighbors for the rest of the decade. Based on personal stories, letters, diaries, and the reminiscences of Eisenhower's closest friends, Going Home to Glory is both an intimate chronicle of the elder statesman's final years and a coming of age story.
In this book, Eisenhower emerges as both a beloved and forbidding figure, whether relaxing at home or playing golf, advising presidents Kennedy and Johnson and 1968 presidential hopeful Richard Nixon, or rendering sage advice to young people?including the author. Set amidst the turbulent sixties, the author describes Eisenhower's many efforts to influence a bewildered nation on civil rights and Vietnam.
David Eisenhower's first book about his grandfather, Eisenhower at War, was a bestseller and a finalist for the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in History. Going Home to Glory, a personal sequel, offers completely new insight into one of the country's most respected presidents.
