Abstract:

Explores the life and actions of one of America's military legends. Volume 1 follows MacArthur from his days as a forgotten hero soldiering in the Philippines on the eve of Pearl Harbor to the moment when he becomes the last shogun of the new Japan. Volume 2 continues as MacArthur converts Japan from a semi-feudal society to a democracy by personally devising a model constitution and sweeping social reforms. Then sent to Korea, he skillfully retreats as China enters the Korean War. Blamed for the sudden reversal, he is relieved of his military duties by President Truman and comes home to a hero's welcome which peters out in the din of 1952 presidential politics and the overwhelming popularity of General Dwight D. Eisenhower.
