Abstract : Dwight David Eisenhower entered onto the world stage In early 1942 during the very darkest hours of World War II and exited in 1961 after leading the nation as our President for eight peaceful and productive years. The study examines his ability to lead at the highest levels of strategic military and political power. It argues that he is in fact one of our nation's few truly great leaders of vision and moral courage. The paper uses several of Eisenhower's key decisions during important events at critical points of his career to demonstrate his ability to make major visionary decisions while enduring extreme national and international political pressure and personal criticism. Lastly, the end results and implications of his decisions are discussed.
