In an era where Americans are desperately seeking heroes and mentors, here is the story of how a saucy young lady from Denver, Mamie Doud Eisenhower, meets her match in handsome Ike Eisenhower, a farm boy fresh out of West Point, and becomes the Army wife par excellence.

They were two very passionate and private people whose 53-year marriage, much of it lived in the public eye, survived great tragedies, misunderstandings, and adventures – and led to glowing triumphs in World War II and the White House.

Mrs. Ike is not only a biography of a beloved American but a superb account of a complex marriage. Susan Eisenhower helps readers see her grandmother as her husband did – a heroic and irresistible figure in her own right. Softcover, 398 pages plus 52 pages of photographs.

Your purchase supports the education and exhibit programs of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum.
