- The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station captures a full and fascinating life.

Tributes quickly poured in for the 41st USA president, a decorated war pilot and onetime Central Intelligence Agency chief who also saw his son George follow in his footsteps to the Oval Office.

John Major, British Prime Minister from 1990-1997 said Bush "saw America's obligation to the world and honored it". On one mission over the Pacific as a torpedo bomber pilot he was shot down by Japanese antiaircraft fire and was rescued from the water by a U. Bush while he was away. In January 1945 he married Barbara Pierce.

Despite unprecedented popularity from this military and diplomatic triumph, Bush was unable to withstand discontent at home from a faltering economy, rising violence in inner cities, and continued high deficit spending.

He was a politician who soared to the highest of highs with a resounding victory in the 1991 Gulf War - and yet squandered his hard-won political capital and descended to the lowest of lows, a most unexpected defeat as a sitting president at the hands of a much-maligned upstart. Fate would render him a war hero and would then assure his dignified ascent to the heights of leadership in the most important American institutions and ultimately, the Oval Office. Bush saying, "We waited for you".

But progress on his watch was felt around the world, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of communism in Eastern Europe perhaps most notably, the liberation of Kuwait after the Iraqi invasion.
