Douglas MacArthur (Jan 26 1880 – Apr5 , 1964) was an American five-star general, Field Marshal of the Philippine Army, and ground commander of the Korean War. He was Chief of Staff of the US Army during the 1930s and played a prominent role in the Pacific theater during World War II. He received the Medal of Honor for his service in the Philippines Campaign, which made him and his father Arthur MacArthur Jr., the first father and son to be awarded the medal. He was one of only five men ever to rise to the rank of General of the Army in the US Army, and the only man ever to become a field marshal in the Philippine Army. Very good. Item #1142

"The accomplishments of General MacArthur in the interest of our country are one of the marvels of history. It is he who has salvaged our nation from post-surrender confusion and prostration, and steered the country on the road of recovery and reconstruction." (p. 396).
