Douglas MacArthur was the 34th American President, as well as the Allied Commander of the Pacific in World War II, and Commander of UN Forces at the start of the Korean War, until his controversial relief of office by President Harry S. Truman.
As President, MacArthur was responsible for taking an aggressive stance in preventing the expansion of Vietnam and Cuba, as well as supporting Hungarian and Czechoslovak revolts. MacArthur is widely regarded as one of the best American presidents in history, and is considered to be the best President of the 20th Century, according to a 2013 survey conducted by ABC.
