Leader of the victory in Europe in World War II, two-term president of the United States, his name attached to an era in American history Dwight Eisenhower looms larger than life for many Americans. Yet there's a human side to Eisenhower, too. The evidence lies in the files of the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, and it's now presented in this full-color compilation of images, documents and artifacts from the life of the five-star general and 34th president.

You'll see snapshots of the future soldier at ease and at play, and love letters he wrote in the wee hours of a summer morning in Kansas. Here are notes written by the now high-ranking officer about short tempers in the military high command in the days after Pearl Harbor. Here, too, in the president's own handwriting, are the ideas he'd use in an address to the nation as he ordered federal troops to Little Rock.
