Personal Quote:

[Dwight D. Eisenhower] is my choice as the American of the 20th century. Of all the men I've studied and written about, he is the brightest and the best. See more »


Shortly before his death in 2002, Ambrose was accused of plagiarizing work from several sources. It was later shown that the material was simply cited incorrectly rather than stolen; Ambrose contained source information in footnotes, but neglected to place the passages in traditional quotation marks.
