The Most Dangerous Man in America : The Making of Douglas MacArthur, Hardback Book

The Most Dangerous Man in America : The Making of Douglas MacArthur Hardback

Description

At times, even his admirers seemed unsure of what to do with General Douglas MacArthur.

Imperious, headstrong, and vain, MacArthur matched an undeniable military genius with a massive ego and a rebellious streak that often seemed to destine him for the dustbin of history.

Yet despite his flaws, MacArthur is remembered as a brilliant commander whose combined-arms operation in the Pacific,the first in the history of warfare,secured America's triumph in World War II and changed the course of history.

In The Most Dangerous Man in America , celebrated historian Mark Perry examines how this paradox of a man overcame personal and professional challenges to lead his countrymen in their darkest hour.

As Perry shows, Franklin Roosevelt and a handful of MacArthur's subordinates made this feat possible, taming MacArthur, making him useful, and finally making him victorious.

A gripping, authoritative biography of the Pacific theatre's most celebrated and misunderstood commander, The Most Dangerous Man in America reveals the secrets of Douglas MacArthur's success,and the incredible efforts of the men who made it possible.
