Rate this:
General Douglas MacArthur was one of the most popular and controversial figures of the 1940s and 1950s. Believing that he could achieve a quick victory in the Korean War by invading Communist-held areas north of the 38th parallel, MacArthur ultimately expanded the war and helped provoke China to launch a counteroffensive into Korea. President Harry S. Truman then relieved MacArthur of his command for insubordination. Nevertheless, MacArthur remained an enormously popular figure and delivered a famous speech to Congress in which he declared that "old soldiers never die, they just fade away".
