ABSTRACT
The article profiles Gerald W. Johnson, a contestant for 1956 presidential elections of the U.S. About the year 1911, a young man of Abilene, Kansas, left Kansas and entered the United States Military Academy at West Point; whereupon the Olive Drab Curtain closed behind him and cut him off from civilian life for 40 years. In the special, insulated world of the services he did so well indeed that the brilliance of his record is unsurpassed by that of any American soldier. In the end he commanded in successful battle more troops than any other captain of any nation at any time. So he became the choice of a large majority of the American voters for the President of the United States, but in accordance with the traditional system it was necessary for one of the major political parties to nominate him. This called for a big issue.
