8.0     Introduction

No person have ever been awarded or promoted to a seven-star rank, although some commentators might argue that General George Washington posthumously became a seven-star general in 1976 (see Part Seven).

If such a rank did exist, it would have an unofficial NATO code of OF-12, and most likely be the most senior commander within the armed forces of a nation, and would be given a national title.

It would probably serve as a temporary military rank for a specific officer or as a quasi-military/political appointment for a nation’s leader.
