Strength of character is supreme
General Dwight D. Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commander of the European Theater of Operations during World War II and responsible for the success or failure of the D-Day operation on June 6, 1944. The operation brought together the land, air and sea forces of the allied armies in what became known as the largest invasion force in human history. General Eisenhower did not come by this responsibility easily. Some may even say that he was an unlikely candidate to fill this role. It was the General’s steadfast character over a lifetime that led him to the fate of the D-Day operation that launched the beginning of the end of the war.
