Description

Veterans' Day Recognition

Dwight D. Eisenhower lived a life marked by extraordinary success. A West Point graduate, his military know-how catapulted him through the U.S. Army ranks. Eisenhower's steadfast leadership helped turn the tide of World War II. His intellect and skillful diplomacy later paved the way to the White House where he served two productive terms as president. In his role as commander-in-chief, Eisenhower became a well-respected and dedicated advocate for peace and human rights throughout the world. In this documentary profile, friends, family, colleagues and noted historians shed light on one of the nation's greatest heroes. Rare footage reveals the defining moments of Eisenhower's life - from his military victories to his presidential inauguration. Produced by A&E, 2005, 100 minutes, not rated.
