Read in January, 2005

Some men become so iconic it is hard to get a sense that they are real people at all. I had previously put Eisenhower in this category and I loved getting a glimpse into this man who was made for his time. The supremely weighty decision of D-day alone would have turned lesser men to complete jelly. If ever there was an American in the 20th century that was prepared "for such a time as this", I believe it was Eisenhower.
