General Curtis LeMay (1906-1990) was a general in the United States Air Force. He is best remembered for the strategic, yet controversial, bombings of mainland Japan. His firebombing of Tokyo was considered crucial to the allied victory in the Pacific Theater but resulted in a massive loss of civilian life. Later in life, LeMay was asked by Alabama Governor George Wallace to join his presidential ticket in 1968.
