Abstract:

He was a boy from Abilene who grew up to command the largest fighting force ever assembled. He went on to ride his military accomplishments all the way to become the 34th President of the United States. Dwight D.

This simple slogan belies the complexity of the man behind it: people did like Ike, but did they really know him? This documentary probes the complexities of Eisenhower's personality, details his military career and reflects on his time as President.
