Historians have ranked U.S. presidents on leadership, economic management, and pursuing justice, but they have never asked themselves who is the best fighter. This show will change all that. Hosted by two history professors—James Early and Scott Rank—this is an NCAA-style tournament in which all presidents fight each other one-on-one until there is one champion. James and Scott narrate each of these 44 fights by comparing the physical abilities of each president (height, weight, etc.), military experience, and special abilities that would help them win. Did they have combat training? Were they generals? Were they ex-wrestlers? The presidents are also ranked how well they would do in hand-to-hand combat at about the age of 35 (no, FDR won’t be fighting as a polio-riddled man in a wheelchair).
