Dwight D. Eisenhower


After a military career that established him as one of the most successful commanders ever, Dwight D. Eisenhower served two terms as president, during which the United States experienced the greatest prosperity in its history to that time. As president, Eisenhower ended the Korean War, grappled with anticommunism investigations, established NASA, defended school desegregation by protecting black students in Little Rock, Arkansas, and toured around the world to address Cold War issues. Readers will also gain insight into Eisenhower’s childhood and military career, including his impressive invasions of North Africa, Italy, and France during World War II.
