No victory at bargain basement prices


“There is no victory at bargain basement prices.” – General Dwight D. Eisenhower


The best book I have read on Eisenhower provided me insight into his amazing ability to bluff. Apparently he was a great poker player and took the risk by bluffing that he might use nuclear weapons against the Communist Chinese. He wasn’t a fan of war and believed that if you were to go to war you went all in or nothing. Well worth the read.
