Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Battle to Save the World by Evan Thomas
Reviewer: Glenn Kist, Dean Emeritus of the College of Liberal Arts, Rochester Institute of Technology

Journalist and author Evan Thomas proposes that behind Eisenhower's bland smile and apparent simple-mindedness was a brilliant tactitian. Thomas uses Eisenhower's skill at poker to show the reader how Eisenhower faced down the Soviet Union, China, and his own generals (some of whom believed a first strike was the only means of survival), and saved the world.
