Houghton Mifflin, 1970 - Political Science - 848 pages
This is the final volume of Clayton's monumental study of MacArthur's life and times. He sets straight a number of legends and myths that have been formed about this remarkable military figure, who was a power in three major wars. He throws light on MacArthur's years as the supreme ruler of a conquered Japan and how that nation grew out of the reforms of MacArthur's day. He also reveals the true story of MacArthur's handling of the Korean War and of the conflicts of principle and personality that caused President Truman to fire him. ISBN 0-395-36004-8 : $29.95.
