Always colorful, always controversial, Douglas MacArthur is one of the dominant characters in American military history. To his admirers, he was the greatest American soldier; to his critics, he was a five-star fake. With unprecedented access to official military records, reports, correspondence and diaries, Geoffrey Perret's groundbreaking biography reveals for the first time a complete and accurate account of MacArthur's tumultuous career, including:•The Pershing-MacArthur feud that cost MacArthur the Medal of Honor in World War I•President Truman's secret plan to fire MacArthur two years before the Korean War• MacArthur's failed presidential ambitions. Unmatched in its candor, authority and insight, this landmark biography charts the brilliant, if flawed, career of a unique American character.
