Dwight D. Eisenhower

A graduate of the West Point Class of 1915, later known as the “Class the Stars Fell On” because of the great number of generals that emerged from its ranks, Dwight D. Eisenhower commanded Allied forces in Europe during the preparation and execution of the D-Day invasion and the subsequent fighting against Nazi Germany that resulted in victory in Europe during World War II. Eisenhower rose to the five-star rank of general of the army and served as a two-term president of the United States from 1952 to 1960.
