A Journey Through History Discussing Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's secret battle to save the world DB76788 by Evan Thomas Hosted on Monday, May 01, 2017

discussing ‘Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's secret battle to save the world‘.

In May we will return to the early fifties where the elderly ex-general Eisenhower assumed the burden of the Cold War he inherited from General MacArthur and President Truman (which we discussed in March). Armed with the secret knowledge obtained from the U2 flights, Ike refused to involve the US in small proxy wars or expand the military at some considerable health and political costs to himself.

The JOURNEY THROUGH HISTORY Group Louisa: the extraordinary life of Mrs. Adams Hosted on Tuesday, September 06, 2016

In September, we leave the somewhat dry but frightening HISTORY OF THE Cold War Era and nuclear disarmament for the parlors and salons of 17th century Europe and Colonial America with this biography of Louisa Adams the talented wife of the brilliant but troublesome John Quincy Adams who was The ssixth president of the United States. Her dangerous, mid-Winter sledge ride from Moscow to Paris with her young son Charles amidst the dispersing armies of Russia and Napoleon reads like a Horatio Hornblower saga.
