We Like Ike: The General who kept us out of war

The Supreme Allied Commander who would become Commander-in-Chief, Dwight Eisenhower.  If titles were a true description of the man, you’d think his ego would shine as bright as the stars on his old uniform.  But this quiet statesman seemed to find the perfect balance between gentle and tough, cautioning the world’s communist leaders he would fight them every step of the way with not just weapons, but calm, civil negotiated peace.  The most famous of war-time generals who believed it was his #1 job to keep us out of war!  Dwight Eisenhower is on this episode of American POTUS.
