Born on January 30, 1882, into a wealthy family in Hyde Park, NY, Franklin D. Roosevelt was stricken with polio in 1921. He became the 32nd U.S. president in 1933, and was the only president to be elected four times. Roosevelt led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II, and greatly expanded the powers of the federal government through a series of programs and reforms known as the New Deal.

Franklin Roosevelt's sudden death shook the American public to its roots. Many had noticed that he looked exhausted in photographs and newsreels, no one seemed prepared for his passing. He had led the United States through an economic depression and the greatest war in human history. A whole generation of Americans had grown up knowing no other president.

His role during World War II established the United States' leadership on the world stage. Roosevelt died in Georgia in 1945.

George Catlett Marshall, was the United States foremost soldier during World War II, served as chief of staff from 1939 to 1945, and built and directed the largest army in history. As a diplomat, he served as Secretary of State from 1947 to 1949, formulating the “Marshall Plan,” an unprecedented program of economic and military aid to foreign nations.

In July, 1938, Marshall accepted a post with the General Staff in WDC, and in September, 1939, was named chief of staff, with the rank of general, by President Roosevelt. He became general of the army in 1944, the year in which Congress created that five-star rank.

With the US entry into World War II after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Eisenhower was assigned to the General Staff in WDC where he devised war plans for defeating Germany and Japan. Becoming Chief of the War Plans Division, he was soon elevated to Assistant Chief of Staff overseeing the Operations Division under Chief of Staff General George Marshall.

Marshall appointed him commander of the European Theater of Operations (ETOUSA) on June 24, 1942. In December, President Roosevelt, who was unwilling to allow Marshall to leave WDC, directed that Eisenhower be made Supreme Allied Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF) which would place him in charge of the planned landings in France.

After extensive planning, Eisenhower moved forward with the Invasion of Normandy (Operation Overlord) on June 6, 1944. Successful, his forces broke out of the beachhead in July and began driving across France. Pushing east in December, Eisenhower's biggest crisis of the campaign came with the opening of the Battle of the Bulge on December 16.
