Based on MacArthur’s own papers as well as those of other commanding officers, this account of his role in Korea strips him of much glamour and unfounded praise and examines the recklessness and arrogance that became particularly apparent in his actions during the Korean War and would eventually lead to his dismissal by Truman. A very good copy, in very good mylar covered dust jacket.
