Description

Churchill, FDR, and Ike: Lessons in Leadership and Faith from Partners Who Won World War II

Three towering figures—Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower—played a major role in the Allied victory in World War II. Without their inspiring leadership, the Allies might not have triumphed. While Roosevelt and Eisenhower were more vocal about their personal faith than Churchill, all three men invoked God’s presence, power, and provision to defeat the Axis Powers. Their leadership styles, though quite different, were all very effective and can teach us about how to promote truth, justice, and righteousness in the twentieth-first century.
