This paper states that Ronald W. Reagan (1912-2004) is now considered to be among the greatest U.S. presidents, which is not a bad achievement for a former "not so great" Hollywood actor who, at 69, was the oldest person to be elected president. The author stresses that Reagan possessed most of the qualities common in all great leaders, such as courage, confidence, vision, character, passion and great communication skills. The paper relates that these leadership qualities enabled Regan not only to lift the country out of economic depression and a serious crisis of confidence but also won the Cold War against the Soviets without firing a single shot.
