Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower (October 14, 1890 - March 28, 1969) was an American politician and general who served as the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He was a five star general in the United States Army during World War II and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe. He was responsible for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942 - 1943 and the successful invasion of France and Germany in 1944 - 1945 from the Western Front. In 1951, he became the first Supreme Commander of NATO.

Eisenhower was of Pennsylvania Dutch ancestry and was raised in a large family in Kansas by parents with a strong religious background. He graduated from West Point in 1915 and later married Mamie Doud and had two sons. After World War II, Eisenhower served as Army Chief of Staff under President Harry S. Truman and then accepted the post of President at Columbia University.

Eisenhower entered the 1952 presidential race as a Republican to counter the non-interventionism of Senator Robert A. Taft, campaigning against “communism, Korea and corruption”. He won in a landslide, defeating Democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson and temporarily upending the New Deal Coalition. Eisenhower was the first U.S. president to be constitutionally term limited under the 22nd Amendment.
