Personal Quote:

[on Truman's handling of the Korean conflict] (He's) a fine man who, in the middle of a stormy lake, knows nothing of swimming. Yet a lot of drowning people are forced to look to him as a lifeguard. If his wisdom could only equal his good intent. See more »

Trivia:

In March 1960 he ordered the CIA to devise the Bay of Pigs invasion, which was left to his successor John F. Kennedy to carry out. Critics maintained that Eisenhower would have provided air support for the invasion, as he did during the 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état. The original invasion plan required both aerial and naval support, but Kennedy felt this would make the US involvement too obvious. See more »

Trademark:

Being a higher ranked General, he commanded 'Joseph S. Patton' to apologize to two privates, that Patton had slapped in the face, calling them cowards and profane names.
