Virtually all Americans above a certain age hold strong opinions about Douglas MacArthur. They either worship him or despise him. MacArthur, the public figure, the private man, the soldier-hero whose mystery and appeal created a uniquely American legend, portrayed in a brilliant biography that will challenge the cherished myths of admirers and critics alike. Solidly researched and scrupulously objective, it re-creates the past with that sense of immediacy which characterizes William Manchester's best work. Includes an Index.
