Eisenhower and Lieut. Gen. W. Bedell Smith, now U. S. Ambassador to Moscow. .. During Eisenhower's •visil-toMos- r cow in 1945 he and Zhukov were on unusually intimate terms, the Russian marshal breaking all precedent and Soviet, protocol lo accept a spur of the moment invitation by Eisenhower to lunch informally with him at the U.
