Overview

Dwight David Eisenhower is famous as both a soldier and as a statesman. Like George Washington and Ulysses S. Grant, Eisenhower the soldier commanded large American military forces and helped win a war that threatened his nation, and then served his country as president. Dwight Eisenhower's life is also the archetypal American story of the poor boy who rises as far as his talents and abilities enable him. I like Ike became a campaign slogan long after it was used to express the feelings of many of the people who met him in school, worked with, or served under him. This book, Historic Photos of Dwight D. Eisenhower, chronicles Eisenhower's amazing life in nearly two hundred photographs. These images and text help explain why another president said, America will always be a better nation . . . because Ike was with us when America needed him.
