Description

Virtually all Americans above a certain age hold strong opinions about Douglas MacArthur, the great thundering paradox of a man, noble and ignoble, inspiring and outrageous, arrogant and shy. They either worship him or despise him. And they are all wrong, because their premises are rooted in apocrypha. Now one of our most outstanding writers, after a meticulous three-year examination of the record, presents his startling conclusions in this superb book. The narrative is gripping because the General's life was fascinating. It is moving because he was a man of vision. It finally ends in tragedy because his character, though majestic, was tragically flawed.
