Eisenhower's Secret War
Series Description: EISENHOWER'S SECRET WAR examines Dwight D. Eisenhower's unwavering commitment - both public and covert - to peaceful co-existence with the Soviet Union in the tumultuous and uneasy Cold War years. Based on recent research by established scholars and writers, the two-part documentary series provides a fresh understanding of Eisenhower's path to the presidency from the time of the successful D-Day landings and, as president, how his national security policies and tactics kept a divided world at peace during the 1950s. Hosted by public television news commentator and author Evan Thomas, Eisenhower's Secret War features the accounts of more than 20 key witnesses -American, British and Soviet - to the major events of the era.
