January 1961: President Eisenhower has three days to secure the nation's future before his young successor, John F. Kennedy, takes power-a final mission by the legendary leader who planned D-Day and guided America through the darkening Cold War.Bret Baier, the Chief Political Anchor for Fox News Channel and the Anchor and Executive Editor of Special Report with Bret Baier, illuminates the extraordinary yet underappreciated presidency of Dwight Eisenhower by taking readers into Ike's last days in power. Baier masterfully casts the period between Eisenhower's now-prophetic farewell address on the evening of January 17, 1961, and Kennedy's inauguration on the afternoon of January 20 as the closing act of one of modern America's greatest leaders-during which Eisenhower urgently sought to prepare both the country and the next president for the challenges ahead.
