Dwight D. Eisenhower
An Associated Press Biography
A stirring exploration of our thirty-fourth President, Dwight D. Eisenhower.
From the time of his childhood in rural Kansas, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s vision of himself and his country was one of confidence and hope. His hard-working parents taught him self-reliance and nothing that happened in his long career ever eroded this trait.
During nearly half a century of service to his country and the world, Eisenhower displayed a deep understanding of the nation’s problems, aspirations, and fears that prevailed during both war and peace.
He possessed an ability to communicate with the American people in a remarkable way. They saw in him a man of sincerity and instructive good will, and they trusted him implicitly. And Eisenhower demonstrated these qualities to his countrymen again and again in full measure.
“Dwight D. Eisenhower: An Associated Press Biography” features a new Foreword by retired Colonel Jack Jacobs, Medal of Honor recipient, and select photographs from the AP archives.
