In 1950, President Harry S. Truman committed US military forces to the United Nations military effort and named Gen. Douglas MacArthur Commander of the U.N. forces. The war ended up in a stalemate and an agreement was signed after two years of fighting. He was president from 1944 to 1952, when Dwight Eisenhauer was elected.
