....stirred up by none other than Woodrow Wilson operating through a couple of "deniable" fronts and organisations when trying to stir up public sentiment after the Lusitania.There had been a brief but ugly spate of anti-German feeling in America during the First World War
Well, Eisenhower had the patronage of General Marshall and probably this patronage resulted in the meteorite rise of Eisenhower from a mere Lieutenant Colonel at the beginning of the war (1939) to a Supreme Allied Commander.Commissar D, the Evil wrote:Eisenhower was strictly a "political" general, not a "fighting" general.
