A new documentary features key witnesses to Ike’s war against Hitler and Nazi Germany
A new documentary from Starbright Media Corporation (SMC) on Dwight D. Eisenhower’s role in World War II is in the final stage of production. Entitled “IKE: The Making of an American Hero,” the program will be released in Spring 2019. The release date coincides with the 75th anniversary of the “D-Day” invasion of Hitler’s “Fortress Europe” by Allied troops under the leadership of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander in the war’s European Theater. This will be the 10th documentary about Eisenhower’s military and political careers produced by SMC since 1991. This new program will trace Ike’s rise from a low-level officer in a small peacetime American army to Supreme Allied Commander who led the fight to liberate western European from the control of Nazi Germany. As the greatest American hero of World War II, “Ike” was able a few years later to become the presidential candidate most Americans wanted to fight the “Cold War” against the Soviet Union and its Chinese ally.
