When Douglas MacArthur addressed Congress in 1951 with his "Old Soldiers Never Die" speech, he was the most popular man in America. During a military career that spanned fifty-two years and included service in three major wars, MacArthur was adored by the public and the soldiers who served under his command on the battlefields of the Western Front, the Pacific Theater, and Korea. Mitchell Yockelson's MacArthur, takes a fresh look at this fascinating and influential leader. Living in the shadow of his famous father, Arthur MacArthur, Douglas set forth on a path to achieve greatness as a gentleman, scholar, and hero. Such aspirations earned him more than one hundred military decorations, including the Medal of Honor. His life was not without flaws, however, and this intimate biography critically examines controversies such as MacArthur's response to the Bonus Marchers in 1932, and his outspoken criticism of President Truman that lead to his dismissal from the Army he so dearly loved. Douglas MacArthur was a national icon and this book is a fitting tribute.
