Douglas MacArthur was born into a military life, and like his father, he became a general in the U.S. Army. MacArthur rose tot he highest levels of command in World War II and Korea and became Army chief of staff. Despite a career that lasted nearly 50 years, the general was relieved of duty by President Harry S. Truman in 1951. Today, many argue MacArthur is the greatest military leader in American history.
