For some time, military historians have been exploring the proposition
that service in the Armed Forces of our Nation has been instrumental in
preparing a notable number of Americans for positions of senior leadership
in the government. Military service played a vital role, for example, in
the development of such leaders as Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt, and
Harry Truman.
In our own times, perhaps no man better exemplifies this proposition than
Dwight David Eisenhower, General of the Army and the thirty-fourth
President of the United States. Today, the name Eisenhower is synonymous
with dynamic leadership in a complex international environment.
The leadership skills that won the great land campaigns of the twentieth century did not come about overnight.With this publication, the Army joins in the Nation's remembrance of the 100th anniversary of Dwight Eisenhower's birth. At the same time, this commemoration provides us with a special opportunity to reflect on how
military service has prepared so many Americans to contribute so much to
the Nation and to the world.
