"George C. Marshall" George C. Marshall was promoted to General of the Army on December 16, 1944. While the rank General of the Army had existed in various points in US History, only after it was re established on December 14, 1944, did it carry the weight of 5 stars.

Pershing (WWI to death 1948), and also General of the Armies George Washington (posthumously) by an Act of Congress.
