9780060164188: Eisenhower: A Centennial Life
From Library Journal:

Published to mark the 100th anniversary of Dwight Eisenhower's birth, this excellent summary of Ike's military and political careers also contains more than 200 photographs, many previously unpublished. Historian Beschloss does not break any new ground in his discussion or analysis, but offers a good introduction for general readers to a President whose skills and accomplishments were not fully recognized during his lifetime. (Over the past 20 years scholarly evaluations of Eisenhower's presidency have become increasingly positive.) It might also convince readers to pick up more interpretive works on Eisenhower, in particular Stephen E. Ambrose's two-volume Eisenhower ( LJ 9/1/83, 9/15/84) and Fred I. Greenstein's The Hidden-Hand Presidency: Eisenhower as Leader ( LJ 10/15/82). Recommended for public libraries.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- As the nation observes the centennial of Dwight Eisenhower's birth, this book brings a new attention to a president and time unfamiliar to many young adults. Over 300 photographs, most not seen before, trace young Ike from Abilene to West Point to his brilliant military career and election to the presidency. A biographical essay that points out Eisenhower's leadership and accomplishments that history has proven strong and more vital than they appeared at the time.
