Was the allied invasion of France on D-Day 1944 the peak of General Eisenhower's career?

  • Yes, probably so.

    Dwight D. Eisenhower got elected president because of his performance as General Eisenhower in World War II, specifically on D-Day's invasion of France in 1944. The years of his presidency were served in a mostly peace oriented time for the United States, so one can say he'd already completed the highlight of his career.

  • General Eisenhower's Victory at D-Day Turned the Tide of World War II

    Operation Overlord also known as the D-Day invasion of France in 1944 is considered one of the best planned and executed offensives in all of military history. Eisenhower coordinated this invasion masterfully along with military officers from other allied countries. He overcame many obstacles in planning the attack and managed to totally fool the Germans into thinking the attack was coming at a different location. Without Eisenhower's efforts the Axis might have won World War II and the world would be a very different place today.

  • Yes it was

    Even though he would go on to hold other offices for much longer, his career peak could have arguably been on D-Day because of the significance of that day and the importance of it to many people around the world as it marked a milestone in the Second World War.

  • He was skilled.

    Yes, the allied invasion of France on D-Day in 1994 was the peak of General Eisenhower's career, because it set the stage for everything that came after it. On D-Day, Eisenhower showed his brilliance as a military general. That day gave him the respect that set the stage for his presidential election.

  • No, his presidency was a greater triumph

    The D-Day invasion was a triumph for General Eisenhower and
    the allied armies, but serving as President of the United States was the peak
    of his career. As a general, Eisenhower led the forces that defeated Hitler and
    brought peace. As president, Eisenhower pushed forward racial integration in
    the military, built the American interstate highway system, and worked harmoniously
    with a Congress in which the majority of members were not of his party. His was
    an amazing presidency.
