Ike's Bluff

Coming next month: Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Battle to Save the World by Evan Thomas.

"Facing the Soviet Union, China, and his own generals, some of whom believed a first strike was the only means of survival, Eisenhower would make his boldest and riskiest bet yet, one of such enormity that there could be but two outcomes: the survival of the world, or its end."
