The Making of an American Hero
A new feature 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, 1941-1945: The Making of an American Hero, the program was premiered virtually on September 16, 2020, the evening before the dedication of the Eisenhower Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. This will be the 10th documentary about Eisenhower’s military and political careers produced by SMC since 1991.
This new program traces 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 Europe 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. Eisenhower and World War II scholars comment on Ike’s ability to fight Hitler and the Nazi war machine as well as fight political battles with his battlefield allies, England, France and USSR.
