"In January 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower passed the torch to newly elected John F. Kennedy. Even though both men were great leaders, they couldn't have been more different. Eisenhower was a five-star army general during World War II and, at age seventy, had become a beloved, experienced figure in the Republican party. Kennedy was one of the youngest presidents ever elected, a Democrat who represented the hopes and dreams of a new generation. In this young readers' adaptation of his New York Timesbestseller, Bret Baier uncovers the fascinating history behind this transition of power. It is an intriguing account of Eisenhower's life, with a focus on his farewell address, shedding light on two of the most iconic presidents of the twentieth century."--Jacket flap.
