Abstract:

"For many, Douglas MacArthur was a general to be ranked with Grant and Lee; for others he was much bluster and some cowardice, the "Dugout Doug" who abandoned his troops at Corregidor. The truth, according to military historian Richard Connaughton, lies somewhere in the middle. MacArthur and Defeat in the Philippines is a judicious and hard-headed portrait of a courageous general and deeply flawed man." "MacArthur and Defeat in the Philippines is a study of Douglas MacArthur and the crisis of leadership, as well as a focused study of one of the pivotal moments in World War II."--BOOK JACKET.
