Douglas MacArthur is best remembered for his adaptability that hoisted him to his greatest accomplishments. Adaptability now reigns as the most indispensable trait for high military leadership in an era of technological leaps that guarantee the nature of war will radically change during the span of an ordinary career. No American figure better exemplifies this trait than the man who was commissioned before the Wright Brothers’ first flight but became a keen exponent of an entirely new dimension in warfare. He was also in charge of the US occupation of Japan, the most successful occupation in history.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Enthusiastically recommended.” Midwest Book Review
“Tom Weiner’s straightforward narration is an excellent fit for the no-nonsense story of a boy born in military barracks and brought up in a military family…With a crisp, unfussy delivery, Weiner portrays a man whose actions in Korea enabled the containment of Communist China for 50 years and whose ego made many powerful enemies, ultimately leading to the end of his military career.” AudioFile
“A classic example of good things in small packages, this addition to the Great Generals Series owes much to its author, an expert on the Pacific War…A good addition for any and all twentieth-century American history collections.” Booklist
