Dwight David Eisenhower was the 34th (1953-1961) president of the United States

born 1890 - died 1969, a US general in World War II and a statesman. He commanded the Allied forces during and after the Normandy landings in June 1944.

Eisenhower was a complex, mercurial man. Confident and self-contained in public, he was content with his public image as president as a grinning, patriotic but somewhat inarticulate citizen-politician. In truth, he was a far more calculating man than he let on, with great natural political skills.
