John L. Hines' (1868-1968) superior leadership skills were recognized by General John J. Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War I. During World War I, Hines successively commanded a regiment, brigade, division, and corps in combat. Prior to Hines, the last leader to accomplish such a feat was Lt. Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, during the Civil War.
 
Omar Nelson Bradley (1893-1981) commanded the largest U.S. battle force ever. The one million men he directed during World War II saw action in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. Bradley was one of the most-respected wartime commanders because of his leadership qualities and concern for the troops.
 
Alvin Cullum York (1887-1964) was a World War I hero. On October 8, 1918, York was among a patrol of 17 soldiers ordered to destroy a German machine gun emplacement. The patrol lost half its men after crossing into enemy territory, forcing York to attack the enemy alone. York returned to the American front with 132 prisoners.
 
Audie L. Murphy (1924-1971) was the most decorated U.S. combat soldier of World War II. Murphy served with the Army in North Africa and Europe. On January 26, 1945, his unit was attacked by Germans in France. Under heavy gunfire, Murphy ordered his men to retreat while he stayed back on a burning tank destroyer. He used the tank's machine gun to stop the attack and saved his unit and himself. Murphy later became a movie star.
