To his admirers, Douglas MacArthur was the greatest soldier in American history; to his critics, he was a five-star fraud. Always colorful, always controversial, MacArthur is one of the dominant characters in American military history.

With unprecedented access to official military records, reports, correspondence, and diaries, Geoffrey Perret's biography provides for the first time a complete and accurate account of MacArthur's tumultuous career, including:

- The Pershing-MacArthur feud that cost MacArthur the Medal of Honor

- President Truman's secret plan to fire MacArthur two years before the Korean War

-MacArthur's brilliant planning for the landing at Inchon

- His failed Presidential ambitions

Unmatched in its candor, authority, and insight, this landmark biography charts the brilliant, if flawed, career of a unique American character.
