In the High Cause of Human Freedom, 1935-1945. Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Barbieri, Kim E.
For Dwight D. Eisenhower, World War II was not simply a war but a crusade in the high cause of human freedom. This publication, the third in a series of posters and curriculum materials on the life and times of Dwight D. Eisenhower, covers the events leading up to World War II and Eisenhower's rise to the rank of five star General of the U.S. Army during the course of World War II. Students learn about General Eisenhower and become inspired by his leadership qualities. The use of primary sources as a method for learning history is often a student's first opportunity to discover that history can be a fascinating subject. Letters, diaries, photographs, oral histories, and artifacts are catalysts for igniting student curiosity about the past. This publication contains 10 sections: (1) "Teacher's Guide"; (2) "Chronology"; (3) "Evaluate a Primary Source"; (4) "Evaluate Web Sites"; (5) "World War II Web Sites"; (6) "Learning Activities"; (7) "Clouds of War" (five primary sources); (8) "A World at War" (five primary sources); (9) "A Hard War: A Bitter, Bloody War" (six primary sources); and (10) "Nothing Less Than Full Victory" (six primary sources).
