A House Divided, Story of the Mc Carthy Era Recently Published

A few words about my recently-published book:  The work entitled, "A HOUSE DIVIDED, The Story of Ike and McCarthy" is the story of the political battle of 1952 through 1954 between President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Senator Joseph R. McCarthy for the political leadership of the
Republican Party and the moral leadership of the Nation. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the climactic struggle between "Ike" and "Joe" played itself out amidst the machinations of larger-than-life historical figures such as Stalin, Churchill, MacArthur, Truman, Nixon, George Marshall, Joseph and Bobby Kennedy,  Edward R. Murrow, Roy Cohn,  Whittaker Chambers and Alger Hiss. 
                                         The Ike-McCarthy political war was fought on a battlefield undergirded by the emergence of Russia as a nuclear power, The Korean War, the "Red Scare" and the tumultous Army-McCarthy Hearings of 1954.  This is history but it's not dry. Rather it relates a three-year story of high drama, human emotions on dispay at government's top levels, pride, prejudice, courage and cowardice.
                                           The colorful characters alone could have provided the stuff for a good novel were it not for the fact that the actual facts were more intriguing than fiction. 
                                            A HOUSE DIVIDED is available in paperback HERE and in e-book on
