Dwight David Eisenhower was the 34th President of the United States of America. He was best known for the so-called Eisenhower Doctrine, in which he spoke out against the expansion of the Soviet Union in the Middle East.

Eisenhower was born in Texas and grew up in poor conditions in Kansas, where he graduated from a military academy in 1915. The talented athlete was appointed Commander in Chief when the USA entered World War II in 1924 and he was given command of Allied troops in North Africa.

After Germany's unconditional surrender and the end of World War II, Eisenhower was still active as a five-star general in the Allied Control Council. Despite other military tasks, including as an advisor to President Truman, Eisenhower devoted himself from 1948 to the management of Columbia University.

Reign (1953-1961):
In the 1952 elections, Eisenhower won by a clear margin over his opponent Stevenson and was sworn into the office of 34th President of the United States of America in January 1953. With the development of "modern republicanism", a solution to the inner-American unrest and instability, Eisenhower continued the rather conservative policies of his predecessors Roosevelt and Truman.

In terms of domestic politics, Eisenhower was keen not only to further develop welfare state approaches but also to dismantle racial barriers. In foreign policy, he avoided conflicts with the Soviet Union as much as possible and even ended the Korean War in 1953. In his doctrine, however, he promised all Middle Eastern states support in order to assert themselves economically and militarily against the spreading communism to be able to.

Despite sending troops to Europe, Eisenhower always tried to ease the situation, which he also expressed at the summit in Geneva in 1955.

After his second term in office until his death in Washington DC in March 1969, Dwight David Eisenhower was still a member of the Republican Party and took over the role of the elderly statesman there.
