His unprecedented election to four terms in office will probably never be repeated; the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, passed after his death, denies the right of any person to be elected president more than twice.

Although expansionism had been omnipotent before the war, the nature of the victory and the strategic reality that it confounded, authorised
