Home of The Brave: A 1960's Political RP

CURRENT DATE: March 6th - March 12th, 1959



Welcome to the Home of the Brave, an American Political and Character RP where players can explore the ins and outs of government, from the southern politics of the Democrats to Progressive Ideas of the Moderate Republicans, to the tooth and nail Civil Rights movement in inner cities and progressive states.

1959, the beginning of a decade of political sociological, and technological change, Sex, Drugs, Rock ‘n’ roll, a decade of Vietnam and Woodstock, a decade where humanity reached the moon and saw communism grip the earth. What is your place? Do you stand as a civil rights leader, marching against oppression? Or are you standing in the doorway of an Alabama schoolhouse? Are you a war hawk advocating for a Cold War to turn hotter? Or will you highlight the basic common bonds that unite us all?

Join the RP as a politician or major figure just before one of the most contentious elections in history, can you do better than the historical figures that dominated the period? Run for president, be a kingmaker or just find your cause to stand for. Where does your ambition lead you?

Play as a Senator, Governor, Congressperson, Mayor or any other figure with a hand in the politics of yesteryear. Or run for office, from military hero to the Presidency to fight for your piece of America's Political pie. Create an original character, make history and help them create, The Home of the Brave.

All characters in this RP are original, and all politicians after FDR died office in 1945 have been replaced with fictional characters. Most events that occurred in real history have occurred in this RP, the economy is in the same shape, the climate, healthcare, are all the same. The only difference is America's entrance into the Vietnam War.

President Henry Davis was elected as a Republican as a War Hero, upsetting the ultimate noninterventionist candidate in a long and hard battle in the primary. Davis is similar to Eisenhower, with similar beliefs regarding civil rights, and foreign affairs, a similar tendency to be quiet yet cunning, and an identical emphasis on rhetoric that has kept American politics stable for his past two terms. In 1955 the Republicans took massive losses across the country resulting in losing the House as well as the Senate. In late 1958, President Davis and congress decided to finally commit to the Vietnam War and there is a great fog over the country, not knowing what will happen, as the draft took many young boys overseas.

As 1959 draws closer to an end, Washington begins to heat up with both the primary fields buffing out, many remain in each party's primaries. In a shocking turn of events, President Davis declares to the nation, that he will not give assistance to the Republican Candidates until the primary is over.

In the midst of a time of great chaos and national confusion, where do you stand?

THE RULES:

1. The OP's words are the words of the Gods, but these Gods are not infallible, you can argue your position in a civil way but in the end their decision is final.

2. No real people or celebrities as characters. There is no John F. Kennedy that you can play. As per the introductory note, politicians post-FDR do not exist, or have been replaced with generic stand-ins: you can play them, should you wish. Records and history are the same, including statistics, save in the places where player-characters have brought about a change.

3. Regarding absences- If you, for whatever reason, must take a leave from the roleplay-that is of course fine. But please inform us ahead and how long it may take. If you are found to have just up and left the RP, we may have to simulate how you character act in votes per say, especially depending on their importance.

4. When it comes to writing; please do it well. We expect a certain level of quality with your posts. One or two sentences will not be acceptable, but we can be permissive-if your character is engaged in conversation, a sentence is fine

5. Please make characters of quality and substance. We don't want Mary Sue flawless characters who are 30-year-olds, actresses, former sharecroppers with military service earning a medal of honor and then returning from Korea to attend Harvard. Those characters aren't very fun to play or interact with. But on the other hand-no sabotage characters. Just because you hate Democrats, don't make a hopelessly corrupt and scandal-ridden Democrat with no redeeming qualities.

6. No cheat-edits. Once you've made an IC post, leave it. Edits to formatting are all right along with typos, but don't try to change anything major compared to what you have already written, especially if it has already been responded to. If your character said it in public, it must stay. Gaffes happen, after all.

7. If you are not sure if something is legal or okay, ask OOC first. Always better to check-and there is limited leniency for things that are obviously bad.

8. No events that directly affect another character without permission first. In essence, avoid physical altercations and outrageous "accidents". Assassination is banned, any external action taken against politicians will take place in the form of an event.

9. No meta-gaming. Do not let the OOC influence the realism of your character's actions. If they are in a closed situation in which information is limited, they cannot state-specific statistics, for example.

10. PG-13 limit. Per site-wide rules, nothing too saucy or racy. You know it when you see it.

11. The IC may have racially charged moments with the RP being in 1959, but the N***** word is unacceptable, and we request that you instead use, 'Coloreds' or something along those lines. Racism in the OOC will NOT be tolerated and will result in an immediate ousting from the RP.

Biography: Henry was born in Topeka, Kansas 1890 to Gulbert and Frilda Davis. In 1900, the family moved to Round-Rock, Texas to live on a plantation with relatives. Henry was tutored by his Grandfather, a Confederate Veteran, before attending the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating college, Henry joined the Army, after requesting consideration for West Point. He went to West Point and was a very dedicated member of the Sports teams. He was academically sophisticated in the subject of Math.

He graduated West Point, afterwich he was stationed in Florida, where he met his future wife, Betty Mueller. They would be married in 1916, throughout their early marriage, they would move from Florida, to Texas, to Kansas, to Louisiana, and to Georgia at one point. When WWI broke out, Henry was more than excited to hear that he was to command a group in France as a Lt. Col. this was quickly shut down, as the Armistice was signed weeks before he was set to deploy.

After the war, he was reverted back to his normal rank of Captain, afterwich he was promoted to Major. From 1920, Davis served under a succession of talented generals Fox Conner, John J. Pershing, Douglas MacArthur and George Marshall. He first became executive officer to General Conner in the Panama Canal Zone, where, joined by Betty, he served until 1924.

During the late 1920s and early 1930s, Davis' career in the post-war army stalled somewhat, as military priorities diminished; many of his friends resigned for high-paying business jobs. He was assigned to the American Battle Monuments Commission directed by General Pershing, and with the help of his brother Harold Davis, then a journalist at the U.S. Agriculture Department, he produced a guide to American battlefields in Europe. He then was assigned to the Army War College and graduated in 1928. After a one-year assignment in France, Henry served as executive officer to General George V. Moseley, Assistant Secretary of War, from 1929 to February 1933. Major Davis graduated from the Army Industrial College (Washington, DC) in 1933 and later served on the faculty

His primary duty was planning for the next war, which proved most difficult in the midst of the Great Depression. He then was posted as chief military aide to General Douglas MacArthur, Army Chief of Staff. In 1932 he participated in the clearing of the Bonus March encampment in Washington, D.C. Although he was against the actions taken against the veterans and strongly advised MacArthur against taking a public role in it, he later wrote the Army's official incident report, endorsing MacArthur's conduct.

In 1935 he accompanied MacArthur to the Philippines, where he served as assistant military adviser to the Philippine government in developing their army. Davis had strong philosophical disagreements with MacArthur regarding the role of the Philippine Army and the leadership qualities that an American army officer should exhibit and develop in his subordinates.

Davis returned to the United States in December 1939 and was assigned as commanding officer (CO) of the 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment at Fort Lewis, Washington, later becoming the regimental executive officer. In March 1941 he was promoted to colonel and assigned as chief of staff of the newly activated IX Corps under Major General Kenyon Joyce. In June 1941, he was appointed chief of staff to General Walter Krueger, Commander of the Third Army, at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. After successfully participating in the Louisiana Maneuvers, he was promoted to brigadier general on October 3, 1941. Although his administrative abilities had been noticed, on the eve of the American entry into World War II he had never held an active command above a battalion and was far from being considered by many as a potential commander of major operations.

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Davis was assigned to the General Staff in Washington, where he served until June 1942 with responsibility for creating the major war plans to defeat Japan and Germany. He was appointed Deputy Chief in charge of Pacific Defenses under the Chief of War Plans Division (WPD), General Leonard T. Gerow, and then succeeded Gerow as Chief of the War Plans Division. Next, he was appointed Assistant Chief of Staff in charge of the new Operations Division (which replaced WPD) under Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall, who spotted talent and promoted accordingly.

At the end of May 1942, Davis accompanied Lt. Gen. Henry H. Arnold, commanding general of the Army Air Forces, to London to assess the effectiveness of the theater commander in England, Maj. Gen. James E. Chaney. He returned to Washington on June 3 with a pessimistic assessment, stating he had an "uneasy feeling" about Chaney and his staff. On June 23, 1942, he returned to London as Commanding General, European Theater of Operations (ETOUSA), based in London and with a house on Coombe, Kingston upon Thames, and took over command of ETOUSA from Chaney. He was promoted to lieutenant general on July 7.

In December 1943, President Roosevelt decided that Davis, not George Marshall, would be Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. The following month, he resumed command of ETOUSA and the following month was officially designated as the Supreme Allied Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF), serving in a dual role until the end of hostilities in Europe in May 1945. He was charged in these positions with planning and carrying out the Allied assault on the coast of Normandy in June 1944 under the code name Operation Overlord, the liberation of Western Europe and the invasion of Germany.

Once the coastal assaults had succeeded, Davis insisted on retaining personal control over the land battle strategy, and was immersed in the command and supply of multiple assaults through France on Germany. Field Marshal Montgomery insisted priority be given to his 21st Army Group's attack being made in the north, while Generals Bradley (12th U.S. Army Group) and Devers (Sixth U.S. Army Group) insisted they be given priority in the center and south of the front (respectively). Eisenhower worked tirelessly to address the demands of the rival commanders to optimize Allied forces, often by giving them tactical latitude; many historians conclude this delayed the Allied victory in Europe. However, due to Eisenhower's persistence, the pivotal supply port at Antwerp was successfully, albeit belatedly, opened in late 1944

Following the German unconditional surrender, Davis was appointed military governor of the American occupation zone, located primarily in Southern Germany, and headquartered at the IG Farben Building in Frankfurt am Main. Upon discovery of the Nazi concentration camps, he ordered camera crews to document evidence of the atrocities in them for use in the Nuremberg Trials. He reclassified German prisoners of war (POWs) in U.S. custody as Disarmed Enemy Forces (DEFs), who were no longer subject to the Geneva Convention. Davis followed the orders laid down by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) in directive JCS 1067, but softened them by bringing in 400,000 tons of food for civilians and allowing more fraternization. In response to the devastation in Germany, including food shortages and an influx of refugees, he arranged distribution of American food and medical equipment. His actions reflected the new American attitudes of the German people as Nazi victims not villains, while aggressively purging the ex-Nazis.

In June 1943, a visiting politician had suggested to Davis that he might become President of the United States after the war. Believing that a general should not participate in politics, Merlo J. Pusey wrote that "figuratively speaking, [Henry Davis] kicked his political-minded visitor out of his office". As others asked him about his political future, Henry told one that he could not imagine wanting to be considered for any political job "from dogcatcher to Grand High Supreme King of the Universe", and another that he could not serve as Army Chief of Staff if others believed he had political ambitions. In 1945, (Not-Truman) told Davis during the Potsdam Conference that if desired, the president would help the general win the 1948 election, and in 1947 he offered to run as Davis' running mate on the Democratic ticket if MacArthur won the Republican nomination.

As the election approached, other prominent citizens and politicians from both parties urged Davis to run for president. In January 1948, after learning of plans in New Hampshire to elect delegates supporting him for the forthcoming Republican National Convention, Davis stated through the Army that he was "not available for and could not accept nomination to high political office"; "life-long professional soldiers", he wrote, "in the absence of some obvious and overriding reason, [should] abstain from seeking high political office". Henry maintained no political party affiliation during this time. Many believed he was forgoing his only opportunity to be president as Republican (Not Dewey) was considered the probable winner and would presumably serve two terms, meaning that Davis, at age 66 in 1956, would be too old to have another chance to run.

President (Not-Truman) sensed a broad-based desire for a Davis candidacy for president, and he again pressed him to run for the office as a Democrat in 1951. But Davis voiced his disagreements with the Democrats and declared himself to be a Republican. A "Draft Davis" movement in the Republican Party persuaded him to declare his candidacy in the 1952 presidential election to counter the candidacy of non-interventionist Senator (Not-Robert A. Taft). The effort was a long struggle; Davis had to be convinced that political circumstances had created a genuine duty for him to offer himself as a candidate, and that there was a mandate from the public for him to be their president. (Not-Henry Cabot Lodge) and others succeeded in convincing him, and he resigned his command in June 1952 to campaign full-time.

Davis defeated Democratic candidate (Not-Adlai Stevenson II) in a landslide, with an electoral margin of 442 to 89, marking the first Republican return to the White House in 20 years. He also brought a Republican majority in the House, by eight votes, and in the Senate, evenly divided with Vice President Johnas Breckenherse providing Republicans the majority.

The United States presidential election of 1956 was held on November 6, 1956. Davis, the popular incumbent, successfully ran for re-election. The election was a re-match of 1952, as his opponent in 1956 was (Not-Stevenson), a former Illinois governor, whom Davis had decicively defeated four years earlier. Compared to the 1952 election, Davis gained Kentucky, Louisiana, and West Virginia from (Not-Stevenson), while losing Missouri. His voters were less likely to bring up his leadership record. Instead what stood out this time, "was the response to personal qualities— to his sincerity, his integrity and sense of duty, his virtue as a family man, his religious devotion, and his sheer likeableness."

Other Info: He gained the Nickname 'Pike' for his strength and love of the outdoors and fishing.

(Not-Henry Cabot Lodge) and others succeeded in convincing him, and he resigned his command in June 1952 to campaign full-time.

Davis defeated Democratic candidate (Not-Adlai Stevenson II) in a landslide, with an electoral margin of 442 to 89, marking the first Republican return to the White House in 20 years. He also brought a Republican majority in the House, by eight votes, and in the Senate, evenly divided with Vice President Johnas Breckenherse providing Republicans the majority.

The United States presidential election of 1956 was held on November 6, 1956. Davis, the popular incumbent, successfully ran for re-election. The election was a re-match of 1952, as his opponent in 1956 was (Not-Stevenson), a former Illinois governor, whom Davis had decicively defeated four years earlier. Compared to the 1952 election, Davis gained Kentucky, Louisiana, and West Virginia from (Not-Stevenson), while losing Missouri. His voters were less likely to bring up his leadership record. Instead what stood out this time, "was the response to personal qualities— to his sincerity, his integrity and sense of duty, his virtue as a family man, his religious devotion, and his sheer likeableness."

Other Info: He gained the Nickname 'Pike' for his strength and love of the outdoors and fishing.

Biography: Henry was born in Topeka, Kansas 1890 to Gulbert and Frilda Davis. In 1900, the family moved to Round-Rock, Texas to live on a plantation with relatives. Henry was tutored by his Grandfather, a Confederate Veteran, before attending the University of Texas at Austin. After graduating college, Henry joined the Army, after requesting consideration for West Point. He went to West Point and was a very dedicated member of the Sports teams. He was academically sophisticated in the subject of Math.

He graduated West Point, afterwich he was stationed in Florida, where he met his future wife, Betty Mueller. They would be married in 1916, throughout their early marriage, they would move from Florida, to Texas, to Kansas, to Louisiana, and to Georgia at one point. When WWI broke out, Henry was more than excited to hear that he was to command a group in France as a Lt. Col. this was quickly shut down, as the Armistice was signed weeks before he was set to deploy.

After the war, he was reverted back to his normal rank of Captain, afterwich he was promoted to Major. From 1920, Davis served under a succession of talented generals Fox Conner, John J. Pershing, Douglas MacArthur and George Marshall. He first became executive officer to General Conner in the Panama Canal Zone, where, joined by Betty, he served until 1924.

During the late 1920s and early 1930s, Davis' career in the post-war army stalled somewhat, as military priorities diminished; many of his friends resigned for high-paying business jobs. He was assigned to the American Battle Monuments Commission directed by General Pershing, and with the help of his brother Harold Davis, then a journalist at the U.S. Agriculture Department, he produced a guide to American battlefields in Europe. He then was assigned to the Army War College and graduated in 1928. After a one-year assignment in France, Henry served as executive officer to General George V. Moseley, Assistant Secretary of War, from 1929 to February 1933. Major Davis graduated from the Army Industrial College (Washington, DC) in 1933 and later served on the faculty

His primary duty was planning for the next war, which proved most difficult in the midst of the Great Depression. He then was posted as chief military aide to General Douglas MacArthur, Army Chief of Staff. In 1932 he participated in the clearing of the Bonus March encampment in Washington, D.C. Although he was against the actions taken against the veterans and strongly advised MacArthur against taking a public role in it, he later wrote the Army's official incident report, endorsing MacArthur's conduct.

In 1935 he accompanied MacArthur to the Philippines, where he served as assistant military adviser to the Philippine government in developing their army. Davis had strong philosophical disagreements with MacArthur regarding the role of the Philippine Army and the leadership qualities that an American army officer should exhibit and develop in his subordinates.

Davis returned to the United States in December 1939 and was assigned as commanding officer (CO) of the 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment at Fort Lewis, Washington, later becoming the regimental executive officer. In March 1941 he was promoted to colonel and assigned as chief of staff of the newly activated IX Corps under Major General Kenyon Joyce. In June 1941, he was appointed chief of staff to General Walter Krueger, Commander of the Third Army, at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. After successfully participating in the Louisiana Maneuvers, he was promoted to brigadier general on October 3, 1941. Although his administrative abilities had been noticed, on the eve of the American entry into World War II he had never held an active command above a battalion and was far from being considered by many as a potential commander of major operations.

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Davis was assigned to the General Staff in Washington, where he served until June 1942 with responsibility for creating the major war plans to defeat Japan and Germany. He was appointed Deputy Chief in charge of Pacific Defenses under the Chief of War Plans Division (WPD), General Leonard T. Gerow, and then succeeded Gerow as Chief of the War Plans Division. Next, he was appointed Assistant Chief of Staff in charge of the new Operations Division (which replaced WPD) under Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall, who spotted talent and promoted accordingly.

At the end of May 1942, Davis accompanied Lt. Gen. Henry H. Arnold, commanding general of the Army Air Forces, to London to assess the effectiveness of the theater commander in England, Maj. Gen. James E. Chaney. He returned to Washington on June 3 with a pessimistic assessment, stating he had an "uneasy feeling" about Chaney and his staff. On June 23, 1942, he returned to London as Commanding General, European Theater of Operations (ETOUSA), based in London and with a house on Coombe, Kingston upon Thames, and took over command of ETOUSA from Chaney. He was promoted to lieutenant general on July 7.

In December 1943, President Roosevelt decided that Davis, not George Marshall, would be Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. The following month, he resumed command of ETOUSA and the following month was officially designated as the Supreme Allied Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF), serving in a dual role until the end of hostilities in Europe in May 1945. He was charged in these positions with planning and carrying out the Allied assault on the coast of Normandy in June 1944 under the code name Operation Overlord, the liberation of Western Europe and the invasion of Germany.

Once the coastal assaults had succeeded, Davis insisted on retaining personal control over the land battle strategy, and was immersed in the command and supply of multiple assaults through France on Germany. Field Marshal Montgomery insisted priority be given to his 21st Army Group's attack being made in the north, while Generals Bradley (12th U.S. Army Group) and Devers (Sixth U.S. Army Group) insisted they be given priority in the center and south of the front (respectively). Eisenhower worked tirelessly to address the demands of the rival commanders to optimize Allied forces, often by giving them tactical latitude; many historians conclude this delayed the Allied victory in Europe. However, due to Eisenhower's persistence, the pivotal supply port at Antwerp was successfully, albeit belatedly, opened in late 1944

Following the German unconditional surrender, Davis was appointed military governor of the American occupation zone, located primarily in Southern Germany, and headquartered at the IG Farben Building in Frankfurt am Main. Upon discovery of the Nazi concentration camps, he ordered camera crews to document evidence of the atrocities in them for use in the Nuremberg Trials. He reclassified German prisoners of war (POWs) in U.S. custody as Disarmed Enemy Forces (DEFs), who were no longer subject to the Geneva Convention. Davis followed the orders laid down by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) in directive JCS 1067, but softened them by bringing in 400,000 tons of food for civilians and allowing more fraternization. In response to the devastation in Germany, including food shortages and an influx of refugees, he arranged distribution of American food and medical equipment. His actions reflected the new American attitudes of the German people as Nazi victims not villains, while aggressively purging the ex-Nazis.

In June 1943, a visiting politician had suggested to Davis that he might become President of the United States after the war. Believing that a general should not participate in politics, Merlo J. Pusey wrote that "figuratively speaking, [Henry Davis] kicked his political-minded visitor out of his office". As others asked him about his political future, Henry told one that he could not imagine wanting to be considered for any political job "from dogcatcher to Grand High Supreme King of the Universe", and another that he could not serve as Army Chief of Staff if others believed he had political ambitions. In 1945, (Not-Truman) told Eisenhower during the Potsdam Conference that if desired, the president would help the general win the 1948 election, and in 1947 he offered to run as Eisenhower's running mate on the Democratic ticket if MacArthur won the Republican nomination.

As the election approached, other prominent citizens and politicians from both parties urged Davis to run for president. In January 1948, after learning of plans in New Hampshire to elect delegates supporting him for the forthcoming Republican National Convention, Davis stated through the Army that he was "not available for and could not accept nomination to high political office"; "life-long professional soldiers", he wrote, "in the absence of some obvious and overriding reason, [should] abstain from seeking high political office". Henry maintained no political party affiliation during this time. Many believed he was forgoing his only opportunity to be president as Republican (Not Dewey) was considered the probable winner and would presumably serve two terms, meaning that Davis, at age 66 in 1956, would be too old to have another chance to run.

President (Not-Truman) sensed a broad-based desire for a Davis candidacy for president, and he again pressed him to run for the office as a Democrat in 1951. But Davis voiced his disagreements with the Democrats and declared himself to be a Republican. A "Draft Davis" movement in the Republican Party persuaded him to declare his candidacy in the 1952 presidential election to counter the candidacy of non-interventionist Senator (Not-Robert A. Taft). The effort was a long struggle; Davis had to be convinced that political circumstances had created a genuine duty for him to offer himself as a candidate, and that there was a mandate from the public for him to be their president. (Not-Henry Cabot Lodge) and others succeeded in convincing him, and he resigned his command in June 1952 to campaign full-time.

Davis defeated Democratic candidate (Not-Adlai Stevenson II) in a landslide, with an electoral margin of 442 to 89, marking the first Republican return to the White House in 20 years. He also brought a Republican majority in the House, by eight votes, and in the Senate, evenly divided with Vice President Johnas Breckenherse providing Republicans the majority.

The United States presidential election of 1956 was held on November 6, 1956. Davis, the popular incumbent, successfully ran for re-election. The election was a re-match of 1952, as his opponent in 1956 was (Not-Stevenson), a former Illinois governor, whom Davis had decicively defeated four years earlier.

Can I join as a Douglas MacArthur-like character? More or less same backstory (except perhaps two or three years younger) and have him run in Republican primaries as a conservative candidate, wanting to move the GOP to a more right wing direction.

Note: MacArthur is the 'model character', but my character is not 100% the same person, so do expect some changes - both in character and (a lot less) occasionally in actions - though not in any drastic way (think about 90 - 95% same but adding a bit of my own flavor). My app also takes into account Louisianan app's references to MacArthur.

Biography:

Jonathan Jackson was born in 26 January 1884 at Little Rock Barracks, Little Rock, Arkansas. His father was Arthur Jackson., a U.S. Army captain, and this in turn led him to decide from an early age that he wanted to pursue a military career. As a young kid, he would read Greek and Roman classics (in English translations), having an unusual interest in the ancient authors for someone of his age. He especially admired Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, whom he hoped to emulate one day. Jonathan was admitted to West Point on 13 June 1903. As a cadet, he showed great promise due to both his intelligence and physical prowess. He became a corporal in Company B in his second year, a first sergeant in Company A in his third year and First Captain in his final year. He graduated first in his 93-man class on 11 June 1907, with an academic score of 2424.12 merits out of a possible 2470.00 or 98.14.

In 1908, he joined the 3rd Engineer Battalion in Philippines and in 1909 he was promoted to first lieutenant. In 1911, he was posted to Fort Leavenworth, where he was given his first command, Company K, 3rd Engineer Battalion. He became battalion adjutant in 1912 and then engineer officer at Fort Leavenworth in 1913. In 1914, he was posted to the Office of the Chief of Staff. That same year, President Woodrow Wilson ordered the occupation of Veracruz. Jonathan joined the headquarters staff that was sent to the area, arriving on 1 May 1914.

There, Jonathan set out to verify a report that there were a number of locomotives in Alvarado. He and his party fell victims of an ambush by five gunmen, who caused the Mexicans of his party to flee. Jonathan's party was then attacked first by fifteen horsemen, and then by another three horsemen. Jonathan shot many of them while remaining unharmed, the attacker's bullets simply grazing his clothes. Because of his heroism in action, he was awarded a Medal of Honor despite the objections of some in the board that his actions were reckless as he had not informed prior the commanding general of this enterprise. It was due to this enterprise that someone dubbed him "Mad Jackson", soon shortened to "Mad Jack". There is still disagreement over whom first use this phrase, but it soon spread. Jonathan accepted the moniker and even joked about it from time to time.

In January 1916, he was promoted to major. In the June of the same year, he was assigned as head of the Bureau of Information at the office of the Secretary of War, Newton D. Baker. In 1917, he was promoted from major to colonel and became chief of staff of the 42nd (Rainbow) Division. In the fighting on the Western Front during World War I, he rose to the rank of brigadier general and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross twice and the Silver Star seven times.

On 10 November, a day before Armistice Day, he was appointed Commander of the 42nd Division, which was chosen to participate in the occupation of the Rhineland, occupying the Ahrweiler district. His experience of the occupation of Rhineland would serve him well later on, giving him crucial insights on how a military occupation had to respond to political, economic and social problems. It was also during that time he first began to develop a serious interest in politics.

This unique experience allowed him in 1919 to become Superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, despite his young age. His radical ideas, such as sanctioning a cadet newspaper, allowing cadets to to travel to watch their football team play and giving them a monthly allowance of $5 shocked professors and alumni and were discarded after he left his post, although eventually they were reinstated. During this time, Jonathan became romantically involved with socialite and multi-millionaire heiress Louise Cromwell Brooks. They were married on 14 February 1922, while in October of that same year, he assumed command of the Military District of Manila in the Philippines.

During his time in the Philippines, he would become friend with Filipinos such as Manuel Quezon. In June 1923, Jonathan assumed command of the 23rd Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Division while in 1924, he was able to prevent a mutiny by Filipino Scouts over pay thanks to both his swiftness and his negotiating skills. On 17 January 1925, at the age of 40, he was promoted, becoming the Army's youngest major general. A few months later, he returned to the US and assumed command of the III Corps area, based at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1927, he prepared the U.S. team for the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam while in 1928, after returning to the US, he assumed command of the Philippine Department.

On 19 September 1930 he returned to the US and assumed command of the IX Corps Area in San Francisco. On 21 November, he was sworn in as Chief of Staff of the United States Army, with the rank of general. Jonathan had to develop new mobilization plans while dealing with defense spending cuts brought upon by the Great Depression. He grouped the nine corps areas together under four armies, which were charged with responsibility for training and frontier defense. Among his chief military aides at the time was Henry Davis.

He also had to deal with the 1932 Bonus March encampment in Washington, D.C. Although sympathetic at first, his opinion turned against the march as he believed it had been infiltrated by communist elements. He ordered troops to advance against them. In less than four hours, they cleared the Bonus Army's campground using tear gas, which cause a number of fires that led to one death. This operation was a public relations disaster for Jonathan as it was unpopular with the American people at large, but made Jonathan a hero to the conservative wing of the Republican party, who believed he had saved America from a communist insurrection.

In 1932, Franklin D. Roosevelt won the presidential elections. Although they had stark political differences, Jonathan and FDR had worked together in WWI and were on friendly terms. He supported the New Deal with the operation of the Civilian Conservation Corps, though some years later he would come to criticize many elements of the New Deal. Jonathan publicly denounced pacifism and isolationism and pushed for a stronger military, which came in contrast to Roosevelt's agenda. He especially clashed with the President over a proposal to cut military spending by 51%. He ended his tour as Chief of Staff in October 1935.

In 1935, the Commonwealth of the Philippines achieved semi-independent status and President of the Philippines, Manuel Quezon, asked Jonathan to supervise the creation of a Philippine Army. Jonathan accepted and received the rank of Field Marshal as well as the office of Military Advisor to the Commonwealth Government of the Philippines. Accompanying him in the Philippines was Henry Davis, who served as assistant military advisor. The Philippine Army was formed from conscription, but Jonathan run into problems are his budget was inadequate, the military equipment outdated and few training camps had been constructed. Nevertheless, he created the Philippine Military Academy along the lines of West Point.

On 31 December 1937, Jonathan retired from the military but remained in the Philippines as a civilian advisor to President Quezon. As such, he had the time to begin writing his memoirs, in which he would overstate his role in events and downplay those of others. In 1939, he also read the 1936 English translation by Jonathan Cape of economist Ludwig von Mises' book "Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis". This book influenced him greatly in moving towards a more right-wing direction on economic issues.

On 26 July 1941, Roosevelt federalized the Philippine Army, recalled Jonathan to active duty in the U.S. Army as a major general, and named him commander of U.S. Army Forces in the Far East (USAFFE): the very next day, Jonathan was promoted to lieutenant general. On 31 July 1941, the Philippine Department had 22,000 troops assigned, 12,000 of whom were Philippine Scouts. Between July and December 1941, the garrison received 8,500 reinforcements. At 03:30 local time on 8 December 1941, Jonathan was informed of the attack on Pearl Harbor, but failed to take action according to the war-plan Rainbow Five.

At 12:30, nine hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor, aircraft of Japan's 11th Air Fleet achieved complete tactical surprise when they attacked Clark Field and the nearby fighter base at Iba Field, and destroyed or disabled 18 of Far East Air Force's 35 B-17s, 53 of its 107 P-40s, three P-35s, and more than 25 other aircraft. Jonathan attempted to slow the Japanese advance with an initial defense against the Japanese landings but his plan for holding all of Luzon against the Japanese collapsed as it spread out the American-Filipino forces too thin. After the Japanese landing force made a rapid advance upon landing at Lingayen Gulf on 21 December, Jonathan ordered a retreat to Bataan. Jonathan now attempted to hold only Bataan while waiting for a relief force to come.

On the evening of 24 December, Jonathan moved his headquarters to the island fortress of Corregidor in Manila Bay but a series of air raids by the Japanese destroyed all the exposed structures on the island and USAFFE headquarters was moved into the Malinta Tunnel. As the Japanese tightened their grip on the Philippines, Jonathan was ordered to relocate to Australia. On the night of 12 March 1942, Jonathan along with a few associates escaped to Australia but he made a vow to return. "I came through and I shall return".

On 18 April 1942, Jonathan was appointed Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in the Southwest Pacific Area (SWPA). He established a close relationship with the prime minister of Australia, John Curtin, and he was among the most influential and powerful men in Australia after the Prime Minister, a fact that caused resentment among many Australians. Jonathan formed his own signals intelligence organization, known as the Central Bureau, from Australian intelligence units and American cryptanalysts who had escaped from the Philippines.

After the Battle of Midway in June 1942, Jonathan proposed for an attack on the Japanese base at Rabaul. After objections from the navy, a compromise was reached that called for a three-stage advance. The first stage, the seizure of the Tulagi area, would be conducted by Admiral Chester W. Nimitz while the later stages by Jonathan. But the Japanese struck first, landing at Buna in July, and at Milne Bay in August. A series of defeats in the Kokoda Track campaign led Jonathan to send Blamey to Port Moresby to take personal command. Having committed all available Australian troops, Jonathan decided to send American forces, which performed poorly in the Battle of Buna–Gona and led to Australian criticism of American troops. Jonathan moved the advanced echelon of GHQ to Port Moresby on 6 November 1942. Buna finally fell on 3 January 1943 and Jonathan was awarded his third Distinguished Service Medal while the Australian government appointed him an honorary Knight Grand Cross of the British Order of the Bath.

At the Pacific Military Conference in March 1943, the Joint Chiefs of Staff approved Jonathan's plan for Operation Cartwheel, the advance on Rabaul. As New Guinea was a country without roads, a multi-pronged approach was employed to solve transportation problem. Disassembled landing craft were shipped to Australia, where they were assembled in Cairns. The range of these small landing craft was to be greatly extended by the landing ships of the VII Amphibious Force, which arrived in late 1942, and formed part of the newly formed Seventh Fleet. The offensive began with the landing at Lae by the Australian 9th Division on 4 September 1943. The next day, paratroops of the 503rd Parachute Infantry landed on Nadzab. The Australian 7th and 9th Divisions converged on Lae, which fell on 16 September. Jonathan advanced his timetable, and ordered the 7th to capture Kaiapit and Dumpu, while the 9th mounted an amphibious assault on Finschhafen, although his plans were bogged down by fierce Japanese resistance. In early November, Jonathan's plan of a westward advance along the coast of New Guinea to the Philippines was approved. Three months later, he ordered an amphibious landing in the Admiralty Islands. It took six weeks of fierce fighting before the 1st Cavalry Division captured the islands.

Jonathan's successes in the Pacific Theater made him extremely popular with the American people and there was a serious effort by the conservative wing of the Republican Party to recruit him as their candidate for the 1944 presidential elections. Jonathan was interested in the presidency and by this time had formulated a right-wing conservative ideology based upon libertarian economics, social conservatism, militarism and strong anti-communism. At the same time though, while he wanted to turn the economy towards a more free market direction, he accepted the need for some parts of the New Deal. However, he decided that he would not enter politics until the Philippines had been liberated.

Jonathan bypassed the Japanese forces at Hansa Bay and Wewak, and assaulted Hollandia and Aitape: his bold thrust by going 600 miles up the coast surprised and confused the Japanese high command. The timing of the operation allowed the aircraft carriers of Nimitz's Pacific Fleet to provide air support. Though risky, the operation turned out to be another success as the Japanese had not expected such a bold move and were surprised, allowing Jonathan to cut off Lieutenant General Hatazō Adachi's Japanese XVIII Army in the Wewak area.

In July 1944, President Roosevelt summoned Jonathan to meet with him in Hawaii. Jonathan persuaded the President that America had a moral obligation to liberate the Philippines. An assault on Leyte was decided, as it was deemed "wide open", and on 20 October 1944, troops of Krueger's Sixth Army landed on Leyte, while Jonathan watched from the light cruiser USS Nashville. That afternoon he arrived off the beach and gave a speech: "People of the Philippines: I have returned. By the grace of Almighty God our forces stand again on Philippine soil—soil consecrated in the blood of our two peoples. We have come dedicated and committed to the task of destroying every vestige of enemy control over your daily lives, and of restoring upon a foundation of indestructible strength, the liberties of your people."

Japanese air activity soon increased, with raids on Tacloban, where Jonathan decided to establish his headquarters, and on the fleet offshore. Over the next few days, the Japanese counterattacked in the Battle of Leyte Gulf, resulting in a near-disaster. Heavy monsoonal rains disrupted the airbase construction program. Adverse weather and tough Japanese resistance slowed the American advance. By the end of December, it was estimated that 5,000 Japanese remained on Leyte, and on 26 December Jonathan issued a communiqué announcing that "the campaign can now be regarded as closed except for minor mopping up". On 18 December 1944, Jonathan had been promoted to the new five-star rank of General of the Army.

Jonathan's next move was the invasion of Mindoro. As the invasion force entered the Sulu Sea, a kamikaze struck Nashville, killing 133 people and wounding 190 more. Australian and American engineers had three airstrips in operation within two weeks, but the resupply convoys were repeatedly attacked by kamikazes. Yet the way was now clear for the invasion of Luzon. Jonathan's primary concern was the capture of the port of Manila and the airbase at Clark Field. On 25 January 1945, he moved his advanced headquarters forward to Hacienda Luisita, closer to the front, and ordered the 1st Cavalry Division to conduct a rapid advance on Manila. It reached the northern outskirts of Manila on 3 February. The Battle of Manila raged for the next three weeks. In order to spare civilian casualties, Jonathan prohibited the use of air strikes. For his part in the capture of Manila, Jonathan was awarded his third Distinguished Service Cross.

After taking Manila, Jonathan turned his attention to General Tomoyuki Yamashita, who had retreated into the mountains of central and northern Luzon. Yamashita chose to fight a defensive campaign, surrendering only in 2 September 1945. Meanwhile, Jonathan committed his forces to liberate the remainder of the Philippines. In May 1945, Jonathan used his Australian troops in the invasion of Borneo. In July 1945, he was awarded his fourth Distinguished Service Medal. As part of preparations for Operation Downfall, the invasion of Japan, Jonathan became commander in chief U.S. Army Forces Pacific (AFPAC) in April 1945, assuming command of all Army and Army Air Force units in the Pacific except the Twentieth Air Force. On 2 September Jonathan accepted the formal Japanese surrender aboard the battleship USS Missouri, thus ending hostilities in World War II. The U.S. Navy awarded him the Navy Distinguished Service Medal.

On 29 August 1945, Jonathan was placed in charge of the Allied Occupation of Japan. At Jonathan's insistence, Emperor Hirohito remained on the imperial throne. The wartime cabinet was replaced with a cabinet acceptable to the Allies and committed to implementing the terms of the Potsdam Declaration, which among other things called for the country to become a parliamentary democracy. Under Jonathan's guidance, the Japanese government introduced sweeping social and economic reforms, some of them to the left of his personal beliefs. He nevertheless took credit for them and would proudly state that the 'new Japan' was in large part created by him.

On 25 June 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea, starting the Korean War. The United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 82, which authorized a United Nations Command (UNC) force to assist South Korea. Jonathan became commander-in-chief of the UNC, while remaining SCAP in Japan and Commander-in-Chief, Far East. His units were forced to fall back to the Pusan Perimeter, but by the end of August, the crisis subsided. North Korean attacks on the perimeter had tapered off. In September, despite lingering concerns from superiors, Jonathan pulled off a successful landing at Inchon, deep behind North Korean lines. Launched with naval and close air support, the landing outflanked the North Koreans, recaptured Seoul and forced them to retreat northward in disarray.

On 11 September, the President ordered an advance beyond the 38th parallel into North Korea. The rapid UN advance, however, was stopped by Chinese intervention. The Battle of Unsan in late October demonstrated the presence of Chinese soldiers in Korea and rendered significant losses to the UN troops. In 25 November 1950, Walker's Eighth Army was attacked by the Chinese Army and soon the UN forces were in retreat. Seoul fell in January 1951. Jonathan was contentiously removed from command by the President on 11 April 1951, after he publicly stated his disagreement with the administration. Polls showed that a majority of Americans disagreed with this decision.

On 18 April, he retuned to the United States. On a speaking tour in 1951-2, he accused the President of appeasement in Asia. He hoped that at the 1952 Republican Convention, a deadlock would ensue between [Robert Taft] and Henry Davis, which would allow him to become the compromise Republican candidate. This scheme failed though as Henry Davis won the nomination and then the presidency. While at fist sympathetic to Davis and his presidency, he began discreetly criticizing his moderate brand of Republicanism. He wished both for more conservative politics at home and a more aggressively anti-communist agenda abroad.

Jonathan spent much of his time writing and publishing his memoirs, which became a sensation. They also came, however, under criticism for downplaying the roles of others and his failures and overstating his own successes and personal initiatives. Despite those criticisms and accusations, his memoirs were overall a great success, both commercially and in terms of public relations.

Henry Davis was reelected in 1956 for a second term, and this seemed to put an end to Jonathan's presidential ambitions as he was already in his seventies and thus considered by many too old to run again. Yet politicians and activists from the conservative wing of the Republican Party, who hoped that Davis would be succeeded by a "true conservative", persuaded him to consider a run for the 1960 elections, even if it was as a single term candidate. Jonathan at first was hesitant, but eventually decided to accept this proposal.

At 76, he would be the oldest candidate yet to run for the office of President. With his advanced age and occasional gaffes due to concentration lapses, he faces an uphill battle. Yet he had to his benefit a charismatic persona, support of conservative activists who want more 'orthodox conservative policies' and a wartime record in WWII and the Korean War that can persuade people that he is the man to lead the US to a victory in Vietnam.

As candidate, he promises to roll back some of the excesses of New Deal, but is careful not to be too radical in his criticisms of it, accepting parts of New Deal as necessary. He is also somewhat indifferent to civil rights, neither supporting nor opposing them, with his muddled stance meant to keep his party united and attract conservative Southerners into a new 'conservative coalition'. He also wants a tougher American response in Vietnam, with more troops committed and occasionally musing about a nuclear option (though he has tried to avoid references to nuclear bombardments lately after his advisors advice him it could scare away people). It remains to be seen if he will win the nomination.

Biography:

Jonathan Jackson was born in 26 January 1884 at Little Rock Barracks, Little Rock, Arkansas. His father was Arthur Jackson., a U.S. Army captain, and this in turn led him to decide from an early age that he wanted to pursue a military career. As a young kid, he would read Greek and Roman classics (in English translations), having an unusual interest in the ancient authors for someone of his age. He especially admired Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, whom he hoped to emulate one day. Jonathan was admitted to West Point on 13 June 1903. As a cadet, he showed great promise due to both his intelligence and physical prowess. He became a corporal in Company B in his second year, a first sergeant in Company A in his third year and First Captain in his final year. He graduated first in his 93-man class on 11 June 1907, with an academic score of 2424.12 merits out of a possible 2470.00 or 98.14.

In 1908, he joined the 3rd Engineer Battalion in Philippines and in 1909 he was promoted to first lieutenant. In 1911, he was posted to Fort Leavenworth, where he was given his first command, Company K, 3rd Engineer Battalion. He became battalion adjutant in 1912 and then engineer officer at Fort Leavenworth in 1913. In 1914, he was posted to the Office of the Chief of Staff. That same year, President Woodrow Wilson ordered the occupation of Veracruz. Jonathan joined the headquarters staff that was sent to the area, arriving on 1 May 1914.

There, Jonathan set out to verify a report that there were a number of locomotives in Alvarado. He and his party fell victims of an ambush by five gunmen, who caused the Mexicans of his party to flee. Jonathan's party was then attacked first by fifteen horsemen, and then by another three horsemen. Jonathan shot many of them while remaining unharmed, the attacker's bullets simply grazing his clothes. Because of his heroism in action, he was awarded a Medal of Honor despite the objections of some in the board that his actions were reckless as he had not informed prior the commanding general of this enterprise. It was due to this enterprise that someone dubbed him "Mad Jackson", soon shortened to "Mad Jack". There is still disagreement over whom first use this phrase, but it soon spread. Jonathan accepted the moniker and even joked about it from time to time.

In January 1916, he was promoted to major. In the June of the same year, he was assigned as head of the Bureau of Information at the office of the Secretary of War, Newton D. Baker. In 1917, he was promoted from major to colonel and became chief of staff of the 42nd (Rainbow) Division. In the fighting on the Western Front during World War I, he rose to the rank of brigadier general and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross twice and the Silver Star seven times.

On 10 November, a day before Armistice Day, he was appointed Commander of the 42nd Division, which was chosen to participate in the occupation of the Rhineland, occupying the Ahrweiler district. His experience of the occupation of Rhineland would serve him well later on, giving him crucial insights on how a military occupation had to respond to political, economic and social problems. It was also during that time he first began to develop a serious interest in politics.

This unique experience allowed him in 1919 to become Superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, despite his young age. His radical ideas, such as sanctioning a cadet newspaper, allowing cadets to to travel to watch their football team play and giving them a monthly allowance of $5 shocked professors and alumni and were discarded after he left his post, although eventually they were reinstated. During this time, Jonathan became romantically involved with socialite and multi-millionaire heiress Louise Cromwell Brooks. They were married on 14 February 1922, while in October of that same year, he assumed command of the Military District of Manila in the Philippines.

During his time in the Philippines, he would become friend with Filipinos such as Manuel Quezon. In June 1923, Jonathan assumed command of the 23rd Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Division while in 1924, he was able to prevent a mutiny by Filipino Scouts over pay thanks to both his swiftness and his negotiating skills. On 17 January 1925, at the age of 40, he was promoted, becoming the Army's youngest major general. A few months later, he returned to the US and assumed command of the III Corps area, based at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1927, he prepared the U.S. team for the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam while in 1928, after returning to the US, he assumed command of the Philippine Department.

On 19 September 1930 he returned to the US and assumed command of the IX Corps Area in San Francisco. On 21 November, he was sworn in as Chief of Staff of the United States Army, with the rank of general. Jonathan had to develop new mobilization plans while dealing with defense spending cuts brought upon by the Great Depression. He grouped the nine corps areas together under four armies, which were charged with responsibility for training and frontier defense. Among his chief military aides at the time was Henry Davis.

He also had to deal with the 1932 Bonus March encampment in Washington, D.C. Although sympathetic at first, his opinion turned against the march as he believed it had been infiltrated by communist elements. He ordered troops to advance against them. In less than four hours, they cleared the Bonus Army's campground using tear gas, which cause a number of fires that led to one death. This operation was a public relations disaster for Jonathan as it was unpopular with the American people at large, but made Jonathan a hero to the conservative wing of the Republican party, who believed he had saved America from a communist insurrection.

In 1932, Franklin D. Roosevelt won the presidential elections. Although they had stark political differences, Jonathan and FDR had worked together in WWI and were on friendly terms. He supported the New Deal with the operation of the Civilian Conservation Corps, though some years later he would come to criticize many elements of the New Deal. Jonathan publicly denounced pacifism and isolationism and pushed for a stronger military, which came in contrast to Roosevelt's agenda. He especially clashed with the President over a proposal to cut military spending by 51%. He ended his tour as Chief of Staff in October 1935.

In 1935, the Commonwealth of the Philippines achieved semi-independent status and President of the Philippines, Manuel Quezon, asked Jonathan to supervise the creation of a Philippine Army. Jonathan accepted and received the rank of Field Marshal as well as the office of Military Advisor to the Commonwealth Government of the Philippines. Accompanying him in the Philippines was Henry Davis, who served as assistant military advisor. The Philippine Army was formed from conscription, but Jonathan run into problems are his budget was inadequate, the military equipment outdated and few training camps had been constructed. Nevertheless, he created the Philippine Military Academy along the lines of West Point.

On 31 December 1937, Jonathan retired from the military but remained in the Philippines as a civilian advisor to President Quezon. As such, he had the time to begin writing his memoirs, in which he would overstate his role in events and downplay those of others. In 1939, he also read the 1936 English translation by Jonathan Cape of economist Ludwig von Mises' book "Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis". This book influenced him greatly in moving towards a more right-wing direction on economic issues.

On 26 July 1941, Roosevelt federalized the Philippine Army, recalled Jonathan to active duty in the U.S. Army as a major general, and named him commander of U.S. Army Forces in the Far East (USAFFE): the very next day, Jonathan was promoted to lieutenant general. On 31 July 1941, the Philippine Department had 22,000 troops assigned, 12,000 of whom were Philippine Scouts. Between July and December 1941, the garrison received 8,500 reinforcements. At 03:30 local time on 8 December 1941, Jonathan was informed of the attack on Pearl Harbor, but failed to take action according to the war-plan Rainbow Five.

At 12:30, nine hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor, aircraft of Japan's 11th Air Fleet achieved complete tactical surprise when they attacked Clark Field and the nearby fighter base at Iba Field, and destroyed or disabled 18 of Far East Air Force's 35 B-17s, 53 of its 107 P-40s, three P-35s, and more than 25 other aircraft. Jonathan attempted to slow the Japanese advance with an initial defense against the Japanese landings but his plan for holding all of Luzon against the Japanese collapsed as it spread out the American-Filipino forces too thin. After the Japanese landing force made a rapid advance upon landing at Lingayen Gulf on 21 December, Jonathan ordered a retreat to Bataan. Jonathan now attempted to hold only Bataan while waiting for a relief force to come.

On the evening of 24 December, Jonathan moved his headquarters to the island fortress of Corregidor in Manila Bay but a series of air raids by the Japanese destroyed all the exposed structures on the island and USAFFE headquarters was moved into the Malinta Tunnel. As the Japanese tightened their grip on the Philippines, Jonathan was ordered to relocate to Australia. On the night of 12 March 1942, Jonathan along with a few associates escaped to Australia but he made a vow to return. "I came through and I shall return".

On 18 April 1942, Jonathan was appointed Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in the Southwest Pacific Area (SWPA). He established a close relationship with the prime minister of Australia, John Curtin, and he was among the most influential and powerful men in Australia after the Prime Minister, a fact that caused resentment among many Australians. Jonathan formed his own signals intelligence organization, known as the Central Bureau, from Australian intelligence units and American cryptanalysts who had escaped from the Philippines.

After the Battle of Midway in June 1942, Jonathan proposed for an attack on the Japanese base at Rabaul. After objections from the navy, a compromise was reached that called for a three-stage advance. The first stage, the seizure of the Tulagi area, would be conducted by Admiral Chester W. Nimitz while the later stages by Jonathan. But the Japanese struck first, landing at Buna in July, and at Milne Bay in August. A series of defeats in the Kokoda Track campaign led Jonathan to send Blamey to Port Moresby to take personal command. Having committed all available Australian troops, Jonathan decided to send American forces, which performed poorly in the Battle of Buna–Gona and led to Australian criticism of American troops. Jonathan moved the advanced echelon of GHQ to Port Moresby on 6 November 1942. Buna finally fell on 3 January 1943 and Jonathan was awarded his third Distinguished Service Medal while the Australian government appointed him an honorary Knight Grand Cross of the British Order of the Bath.

At the Pacific Military Conference in March 1943, the Joint Chiefs of Staff approved Jonathan's plan for Operation Cartwheel, the advance on Rabaul. As New Guinea was a country without roads, a multi-pronged approach was employed to solve transportation problem. Disassembled landing craft were shipped to Australia, where they were assembled in Cairns. The range of these small landing craft was to be greatly extended by the landing ships of the VII Amphibious Force, which arrived in late 1942, and formed part of the newly formed Seventh Fleet. The offensive began with the landing at Lae by the Australian 9th Division on 4 September 1943. The next day, paratroops of the 503rd Parachute Infantry landed on Nadzab. The Australian 7th and 9th Divisions converged on Lae, which fell on 16 September. Jonathan advanced his timetable, and ordered the 7th to capture Kaiapit and Dumpu, while the 9th mounted an amphibious assault on Finschhafen, although his plans were bogged down by fierce Japanese resistance. In early November, Jonathan's plan of a westward advance along the coast of New Guinea to the Philippines was approved. Three months later, he ordered an amphibious landing in the Admiralty Islands. It took six weeks of fierce fighting before the 1st Cavalry Division captured the islands.

Jonathan's successes in the Pacific Theater made him extremely popular with the American people and there was a serious effort by the conservative wing of the Republican Party to recruit him as their candidate for the 1944 presidential elections. Jonathan was interested in the presidency and by this time had formulated a right-wing conservative ideology based upon libertarian economics, social conservatism, militarism and strong anti-communism. At the same time though, while he wanted to turn the economy towards a more free market direction, he accepted the need for some parts of the New Deal. However, he decided that he would not enter politics until the Philippines had been liberated.

Jonathan bypassed the Japanese forces at Hansa Bay and Wewak, and assaulted Hollandia and Aitape: his bold thrust by going 600 miles up the coast surprised and confused the Japanese high command. The timing of the operation allowed the aircraft carriers of Nimitz's Pacific Fleet to provide air support. Though risky, the operation turned out to be another success as the Japanese had not expected such a bold move and were surprised, allowing Jonathan to cut off Lieutenant General Hatazō Adachi's Japanese XVIII Army in the Wewak area.

In July 1944, President Roosevelt summoned Jonathan to meet with him in Hawaii. Jonathan persuaded the President that America had a moral obligation to liberate the Philippines. An assault on Leyte was decided, as it was deemed "wide open", and on 20 October 1944, troops of Krueger's Sixth Army landed on Leyte, while Jonathan watched from the light cruiser USS Nashville. That afternoon he arrived off the beach and gave a speech: "People of the Philippines: I have returned.

We have come dedicated and committed to the task of destroying every vestige of enemy control over your daily lives, and of restoring upon a foundation of indestructible strength, the liberties of your people."

Japanese air activity soon increased, with raids on Tacloban, where Jonathan decided to establish his headquarters, and on the fleet offshore. Over the next few days, the Japanese counterattacked in the Battle of Leyte Gulf, resulting in a near-disaster. Heavy monsoonal rains disrupted the airbase construction program. Adverse weather and tough Japanese resistance slowed the American advance. By the end of December, it was estimated that 5,000 Japanese remained on Leyte, and on 26 December Jonathan issued a communiqué announcing that "the campaign can now be regarded as closed except for minor mopping up". On 18 December 1944, Jonathan had been promoted to the new five-star rank of General of the Army.

Jonathan's next move was the invasion of Mindoro. As the invasion force entered the Sulu Sea, a kamikaze struck Nashville, killing 133 people and wounding 190 more. Australian and American engineers had three airstrips in operation within two weeks, but the resupply convoys were repeatedly attacked by kamikazes. Yet the way was now clear for the invasion of Luzon. Jonathan's primary concern was the capture of the port of Manila and the airbase at Clark Field. On 25 January 1945, he moved his advanced headquarters forward to Hacienda Luisita, closer to the front, and ordered the 1st Cavalry Division to conduct a rapid advance on Manila. It reached the northern outskirts of Manila on 3 February. The Battle of Manila raged for the next three weeks. In order to spare civilian casualties, Jonathan prohibited the use of air strikes. For his part in the capture of Manila, Jonathan was awarded his third Distinguished Service Cross.

After taking Manila, Jonathan turned his attention to General Tomoyuki Yamashita, who had retreated into the mountains of central and northern Luzon. Yamashita chose to fight a defensive campaign, surrendering only in 2 September 1945. Meanwhile, Jonathan committed his forces to liberate the remainder of the Philippines. In May 1945, Jonathan used his Australian troops in the invasion of Borneo. In July 1945, he was awarded his fourth Distinguished Service Medal. As part of preparations for Operation Downfall, the invasion of Japan, Jonathan became commander in chief U.S. Army Forces Pacific (AFPAC) in April 1945, assuming command of all Army and Army Air Force units in the Pacific except the Twentieth Air Force. On 2 September Jonathan accepted the formal Japanese surrender aboard the battleship USS Missouri, thus ending hostilities in World War II. The U.S. Navy awarded him the Navy Distinguished Service Medal.

On 29 August 1945, Jonathan was placed in charge of the Allied Occupation of Japan. At Jonathan's insistence, Emperor Hirohito remained on the imperial throne. The wartime cabinet was replaced with a cabinet acceptable to the Allies and committed to implementing the terms of the Potsdam Declaration, which among other things called for the country to become a parliamentary democracy. Under Jonathan's guidance, the Japanese government introduced sweeping social and economic reforms, some of them to the left of his personal beliefs. He nevertheless took credit for them and would proudly state that the 'new Japan' was in large part created by him.

On 25 June 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea, starting the Korean War. The United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 82, which authorized a United Nations Command (UNC) force to assist South Korea. Jonathan became commander-in-chief of the UNC, while remaining SCAP in Japan and Commander-in-Chief, Far East. His units were forced to fall back to the Pusan Perimeter, but by the end of August, the crisis subsided. North Korean attacks on the perimeter had tapered off. In September, despite lingering concerns from superiors, Jonathan pulled off a successful landing at Inchon, deep behind North Korean lines. Launched with naval and close air support, the landing outflanked the North Koreans, recaptured Seoul and forced them to retreat northward in disarray.

On 11 September, the President ordered an advance beyond the 38th parallel into North Korea. The rapid UN advance, however, was stopped by Chinese intervention. The Battle of Unsan in late October demonstrated the presence of Chinese soldiers in Korea and rendered significant losses to the UN troops. In 25 November 1950, Walker's Eighth Army was attacked by the Chinese Army and soon the UN forces were in retreat. Seoul fell in January 1951. Jonathan was contentiously removed from command by the President on 11 April 1951, after he publicly stated his disagreement with the administration. Polls showed that a majority of Americans disagreed with this decision.

On 18 April, he retuned to the United States. On a speaking tour in 1951-2, he accused the President of appeasement in Asia. He hoped that at the 1952 Republican Convention, a deadlock would ensue between [Robert Taft] and Henry Davis, which would allow him to become the compromise Republican candidate. This scheme failed though as Henry Davis won the nomination and then the presidency. While at fist sympathetic to Davis and his presidency, he began discreetly criticizing his moderate brand of Republicanism. He wished both for more conservative politics at home and a more aggressively anti-communist agenda abroad.

Jonathan spent much of his time writing and publishing his memoirs, which became a sensation. They also came, however, under criticism for downplaying the roles of others and his failures and overstating his own successes and personal initiatives. Despite those criticisms and accusations, his memoirs were overall a great success, both commercially and in terms of public relations.

Henry Davis was reelected in 1956 for a second term, and this seemed to put an end to Jonathan's presidential ambitions as he was already in his seventies and thus considered by many too old to run again. Yet politicians and activists from the conservative wing of the Republican Party, who hoped that Davis would be succeeded by a "true conservative", persuaded him to consider a run for the 1960 elections, even if it was as a single term candidate. Jonathan at first was hesitant, but eventually decided to accept this proposal.

At 76, he would be the oldest candidate yet to run for the office of President. With his advanced age and occasional gaffes due to concentration lapses, he faces an uphill battle. Yet he had to his benefit a charismatic persona, support of conservative activists who want more 'orthodox conservative policies' and a wartime record in WWII and the Korean War that can persuade people that he is the man to lead the US to a victory in Vietnam.

As candidate, he promises to roll back some of the excesses of New Deal, but is careful not to be too radical in his criticisms of it, accepting parts of New Deal as necessary. He is also somewhat indifferent to civil rights, neither supporting nor opposing them, with his muddled stance meant to keep his party united and attract conservative Southerners into a new 'conservative coalition'. He also wants a tougher American response in Vietnam, with more troops committed and occasionally musing about a nuclear option (though he has tried to avoid references to nuclear bombardments lately after his advisors advice him it could scare away people). It remains to be seen if he will win the nomination.
