( Available to ship on or about 08/23/14. ) For many, Douglas MacArthur was a general to be ranked with Grant and Lee; for others he was much bluster and some cowardice, the "Dugout Doug" who abandoned his troops at Corregidor.

MacArthur and Defeat in the Philippines is a judicious and hard-headed portrait of a courageous general and deeply flawed man. This is a fascinating study of Douglas MacArthur and the crisis of leadership, as well as a focused study of one of the pivotal moments in World War II.
