World War Two - General Eisenhower

President Eisenhower insists he saw the ghost of Abraham Lincoln - you can read about it here.

The Plot to Assassinate Eisenhower Foiled by Cartoons...(Lion's Roar, 1946)

An interesting W.W. II story was passed along by actor, announcer, producer and screenwriter John Nesbitt (1910 - 1960), who is best remembered as the narrator for the MGM radio series Passing Parade. Five months after the end of the war, Nesbitt relayed to his audience that during the Battle of the Bulge, U.S.-born Nazi agents, having been ordered to kill General Eisenhower, did not even come close to fulfilling their mission, suffered incarceration among other humiliations - all due to a lack of knowledge where American comic strips were concerned. Read on...

Here is another "Now it Can be Told" article...


''With Eisenhower in Sicily'' (Collier's Magazine, 1943)

From Amazon:

"On the first day of operations, I heard him say, 'By golly, we've done it again! By golly, I wouldn't have believed it1' Meaning the surprise landings really turned out to be a surprise. And [turning to the press corps] he added, 'This is the period when you fellows want to know everything, but military folks are scared to death just now. Darn it, I can't tell you anything! After all, I'm the man responsible."


When General Eisenhower Came Home (Yank Magazine, 1945)

"The General had seen welcomes in Paris and London and Washington and New York, but he got the warmest reception of all when he hit his boyhood home town, little Abilene, Kansas."

"As soon as the Eisenhower party was seated a gun boomed and the parade began. It wasn't a military parade. It told the story of a barefoot boy's rise from fishing jaunts on nearby Mud Creek to command of the Allied expeditionary force that defeated Fascism in Western Europe."

In 1944, a class of sixth graders wrote General Eisenhower and asked him how they can help in the war effort; click here to read his response...


General Eisenhower Q & A (Yank Magazine, 1945)

"In two full-dress interviews in Paris and Washington, General Dwight D. Eisenhower talked about some of the high spots of the campaign for Europe and about certain post-VE-Day questions. It's been generally agreed that the interviews were pretty historic. Here are highlights of the general's talks to the press in the two Allied capitals..."

Montgomery's Quarrel with Eisenhower (Collier's Magazine, 1946)

One of the many "now-it-can-be-told" stories of the early post-war period had to be that friction that existed on the SHAEF staff between British General Bernard Law Montgomery and General Eisenhower. It is recalled herein by the noted English war correspondent Alan Moorehead (1910 1983).


A Pre-D-Day Interview with General Eisenhower (Yank, 1944)

Written in the interest of promoting U.S. Army morale, this is a profile of five-star General Dwight David Eisenhower by an anonymous YANK MAGAZINE journalist. An interesting interview, it was printed six months prior to the Normandy invasion:

"General Eisenhower's rise is surely without parallel in American military history. From colonel to supreme commander and full general in two years - from the 'mock' war maneuvers in the delta country of Louisiana to the real maneuvers that face him now as he must figure out the when and how of the attack that must drive to the very heart of Nazi Europe - that is his story."
