“John Curtin (1885–1945) was an Australian politician who served as the 14th Prime Minister of Australia from 1941 until his death in 1945. He led the country for the majority of WWII, including all but the last few weeks of the war in the Pacific. He was the leader of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) from 1935 to 1945, and its longest-serving leader until Gough Whitlam. Curtin’s leadership skills and personal character were acclaimed by his political contemporaries. He is frequently cited as one of Australia’s greatest prime ministers.” Ref: Wiki.
