Evan Thomas - Ike's Bluff
Monday, November 19, 7:30 p.m.
at Friendship Heights Village Center
4433 S. Park Ave
Chevy Chase, MD
Metro: Friendship Heights
Mr. Thomas’s book, Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Battle to Save the World (Little, Brown, $29.99), focuses on Eisenhower’s years in the White House- 1953 to 1961- and his determination to keep America out of another world war. Ike’s “bluff” was his ability to convince our enemies that he was willing to use nuclear weapons.
Evan Thomas is the author of several bestselling works of history and biography, including The War Lovers and Sea of Thunder. He was a writer and editor at Time and Newsweek for more than 30 years, and he is frequently a commentator on television and radio. He teaches at Princeton University.
