Eisenhower and Dulles Brothers

John Foster Dulles was Eisenhower's secretary of state and was well known for his brinkmanship. The following major events took place while he was in charge of the world. Dulles was bold enough to send high-flying spy planes over the territory of the Soviet Union until he died in 1959. This flight continued until one of the planes (piloted by Francis Gary Power) was shot down by a Soviet missile in April of 1960.
