David Eisenhower: Eisenhower, Hauenstein, and the men and women who saved civilization

Date and Time

Thursday, March 18, 2021 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Description

The story of our namesake, Colonel Ralph W. Hauenstein, is also the story of the European Theater of U.S. Operations, led by General Dwight D. Eisenhower. Under General Eisenhower, Ralph served as Chief of the Intelligence Branch in the Army’s European Theater. Intelligence played a vital role in the planning and execution of D-Day, yet much remains to be told. To honor Ralph on what would be his 109th birthday, the Hauenstein Center is proud to welcome author and historian David Eisenhower. David will share stories about his grandfather and relate his insights into Ralph’s work in intelligence during World War II. More details and RSVP coming soon!
