Dwight D. Eisenhower – Five-Star General Eisenhower led the attack in North Africa in November of 1942. He was the master organizer of the D-Day invasion in Europe (June 6, 1944). He ran for the Republican ticket in the 1952 and the 1956 elections and won. He was very well-liked by the public and ended up being the 34th President of the United States.

Yalta Conference – A final conference of the Big Three took place in February 1945 at Yalta. Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt reached momentous agreements, and final plans were laid for smashing the German lines. Stalin agreed that Poland, Bulgaria and Romania should have a representative government with free elections, although this promise was never kept. The Big Three further announced that they had decided to hold a multi-power conference in San Francisco, for the purpose of fashioning a new international peacekeeping organization – the UN. Roosevelt persuaded Stalin to enter the war in Japan in return for the southern half of Sakhalin Island and Japan’s Kurile Islands, as well as joint control over the railroads of China’s Manchuria. At Yalta, the Big Three were not drafting a comprehensive peace settlement, but rather sketching general intentions and testing one another’s reaction.
