Douglas MacArthur was Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in the Southwest Pacific area during World War II. Best remembered for the adaptability that fostered his greatest accomplishments, he led the defence of Australia, and the recapture of New Guinea, the Philippines and Borneo. MacArthur also oversaw the occupation of Japan from 1945 to 1951, the most successful occupation in history, and is credited for making far-ranging democratic changes in that country. Today, MacArthur remains one of the most controversial figures in American history. While greatly admired by many for his strategic and tactical brilliance, MacArthur was also criticized by many for his actions in command, and especially his challenge to President Truman in 1951.
