Summary
Set during the chaotic years of World War II, The General's Women tells the story of the conflicted relationship between General Dwight Eisenhower and Kay Summers, by his Irish driver/aide, and the impact of that relationship on Mamie Eisenhower and her life in Washington during the war. Told from three alternating points of view (Kay's, Ike's, and Mamie's), the novel charts the deepening of the relationship as Ike and Kay move from England (1942) to North Africa (1942-43) to England, France, and Germany before and after the Normandy landing (1944-45). At the end of the war, Ike is faced with the heart-wrenching choice between marrying Kay and a political future
Summary
Presents a fictionalized account of the complicated relationship between General Eisenhower and his aide, Kay Summersby, during World War II, its impact on Mamie Eisenhower's life in Washington, and its influence on Eisenhower's life after the war
