(Redirected from Eisenhower)

Dwight D. Eisenhower was the supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe during World War II, and later became president of the United States for two terms.

As commander he was generally well-liked but made some controversial decisions, like supporting Operation Market Garden over the broad front strategy advocated by Patton.

His first and middle names were switched to avoid confusion with his father.
