General Douglas MacArthur
Noted for his bold tactical decisions, General Douglas MacArthur {1880-1964} is one of the most admired military officers in American history. While serving in France during World War I, he was promoted to brigadier general and earned decorations for heroism. In World War II, his careful coordination of land, sea, and air assaults minimized casualties and helped ensure the Allies' success in the Southwest Pacific. After the war, MacArthur administered Japan's transition to democracy.
