Eisenhower biography reissued by AP on D-Day anniversary
The Associated Press and Diversion Books have republished "Dwight D. Eisenhower," a biography by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Relman Morin, on today’s 72nd anniversary of D-Day.
Morin was an AP special correspondent who knew Eisenhower for 25 years and reported on many of his activities on the world stage.
Morin first met Eisenhower in North Africa during World War II and later helped to cover his two presidential campaigns for AP. Over the years he interviewed the general dozens of times so that the biography provides unique insights into the 34th president’s life as a soldier, politician and statesman.
Morin also was granted access to the wartime leader's personal files and associates while preparing the book, originally published in 1969.
The reissued biography includes a new foreword by a Medal of Honor recipient, retired Col. Jack Jacobs, and an additional report on Eisenhower's secret trip to Korea in 1952 by another AP special correspondent, Don Whitehead.
"We felt this terrific biography deserved a new shelf life and hope it is rediscovered and appreciated by admirers of Eisenhower's legacy," said Peter Costanzo, AP’s digital and archival publishing manager.
The book contains select photographs from AP's archives and is available as an e-book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, GooglePlay, iTunes, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold.
