Few people have made decisions as momentous as Dwight D. Eisenhower, nor has one person had to make such a varied range of them. From D-Day to Little Rock, from the Korean War to Cold War crises, from the Red Scare to the Missile Gap controversies. The principles behind Eisenhower’s biggest decisions will be shared to show he was able to give our country eight years of peace and prosperity by relying on a core set of principles.

Join President Eisenhower's granddaughter, Susan Eisenhower, as she talks about her new book How Ike Led: The Principles Behind Eisenhower's Biggest Decisions.
