Profiles five-star general Douglas MacArthur, focusing on his contributions to military strategy and leadership, his role as an early proponent of the Air Force as an integral part of modern warfare, and his management of peace during the U.S. occupation of Japan.

McMillan Palgrave
Douglas MacArthur is best remembered for his ability to adapt, a quality that catalyzed his greatest accomplishments. Adaptability has become an indispensable trait for military leadership in an era of technological leaps that guarantee the nature of war will radically change during the span of an ordinary career. One of the first proponents of a new dimension in warfare--the Air Force--MacArthur was also unmatched historically for his management of peace during the U.S. occupation of Japan. For generations to come, MacArthur's legacy will yield profitable--and entertaining--examples to Americans in and out of uniform.

Wow - a short book! And a quick read - typical of Frank's work - concise, to the point. In this book, he often juxtaposes Fans vs Critics, giving readers a great chance to see how controversies started, how they survived and how they've perverted over time.
