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.
Entering politics, Eisenhower ran for president that fall with Richard Nixon as his running mate. Winning in a landslide, he defeated Adlai Stevenson. A moderate Republican, Eisenhower's served eight years in the White House.
