Question: Awarded for his famous post-war recovery “plan,” who is the only U.S. general to receive the Nobel Peace Prize?

Answer: A five-star general, George C. Marshall rose through the United States Army to become Chief of Staff under presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman, and then served as Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense under Harry Truman. Winston Churchill lauded Marshall as the “organizer of victory” for his leadership of the Allied victory in World War II. As Secretary of State, Marshall formulated the “Marshall Plan”, an unprecedented post-war U.S. program of economic aid to Western Europe following the devastation of World War II. In recognition of this work, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953.
