Best Answer

From a US perspective only, in order from 1955-1975(technical start to finish) the Presidents were Dwight Eisenhower, JFK, Lyndon B. Johnson,Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford during this time. Military leaders included William Westmoreland. Diplomatic leaders included Robert MacNamara and Henry Kissinger. I'm sure someone else can elaborate more fully on this question but this does give you some of the key names.
