Book Description :

Written in his own hand, and finished only weeks before his death, Reminiscences by General Douglas MacArthur spans more than half a century of modern history. These pages show a man whose unique vantage point at the center of the stage enabled him to illuminate major controversies of our time, and whose views and ideas - never before published in full - are now bound to bring new and unexpected reappraisals to the conflicts in which he himself was the central figure. Douglas MacArthur served under eight presidents. He was honored as few men have been. His genius for command, and his ability to implement that command by strategy, stand as landmarks in military history. No man was ever so outspoken in his commitment to his troops or in his beliefs. A legend in his own lifetime, he was a man who aroused controversy, yet stood above the awe and the conflicts he inspired. Never before has one soldier's life so completely reflected a nation's military history. After graduation from West Point with the highest average ever achieved by a cadet, MacArthur served in Vera Cruz during the Mexican uprisings and then as military attache in the Far East, where he first perceived Japanese aspirations for hegemony the Orient. His courage in the trenches and his leadership of the famous Rainbow Division during the First World War were cited by General Pershing, who seven times awarded MacArthur the Silver Star.

Book Description :

Written in his own hand and finished only weeks before his death, this memoir by Gen. Douglas MacArthur spans more than half a century of modern history. His vantage point at center stage during the major controversies of the twentieth century afforded him unique views of the conflicts in which he played a vital role. No soldier in recent times has been more admired—or reviled. Liberator of the Philippines, shogun of occupied Japan, victor of the battle of Inchon, the general was a national hero when suddenly relieved of his duties by President Truman in 1950. His supporters believe his genius for command and skill as a strategist stand as landmarks in military history. His critics are not so kind, calling him a gigantic ego paying homage to himself in this book. Regardless, Reminiscences is a moving final testament by one of America’s most decorated heroes, decade by decade, battlefield by battlefield. After graduation from West Point with the highest average ever achieved by a cadet, MacArthur served in Vera Cruz during the Mexican uprisings and later in World War I. His courage in the trenches and his leadership of the famous Rainbow Division won him seven Silver Stars. Appointed Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in the Pacific in World War II, he was the architect of the campaign to drive the Japanese from their strongholds at Bataan, Corregidor, and New Guinea. His account of the war is dramatically punctuated with revealing portraits of key personalities and insights into his stands on controversial issues. Richly illustrated throughout. “Douglas MacArthur’s memoirs...record an extraordinary and controversial public career of more than fifty years—as MacArthur wanted it remembered.”—Newsweek “MacArthur was praised and blamed most of the time for the wrong reasons. His Reminiscences, written in the last two years of his life, should help put him back in perspective.”—Time

Book Description :

MacArthur's supremacy as a true conversationalist is readily documented. This work on the wisdom and sayings of MacArthur is presented as a new-classicist document in that almost every item listed came from the mouth of General MacArthur and from his writings. He wrote almost all of his own speeches with eloquence in all of them. These speeches stand out as note-worthy because they were made immediately after periods of great historical significance. In these speeches he seemed to be speaking strictly from his heart. Regardless of the individual's attitude toward politics, religion, military or civilian service, his words sound spiritual and practical.

Book Description :

The two-year search for General Douglas MacArthur's speeches and reports was truly a labor of love. My Administrative Assistant, Ellen Schaefer, and I culled over 1,000 sources including memories, biographies, histories, military magazines such as the Army and Air Force Journals, unit histories, commercial magazines and newspapers. Magazines included such publications as National Geographic, Life Magazine and many esoteric less circulated literature such as Military Magazine, Retired Officers Magazine, Air Force Magazine and so many others. We received guidance and assistance from such sources as the U.S. Military Academy, the Engineering School at Ft. Leavenworth, the Command and General Staff School at Leavenworth, the Army War College, the MacArthur Archives Director James Zobel, the Library of Congress, the War Department; the sources seemed endless. We do believe we were able to capture all the major public speeches and reports covering MacArthur's truly productive years from 1908 through 1964. Contains more than 125 speeches/reports. It will be interesting to note, MacArthur established his personality early in his military career and never veered from this. His admonition from his Mother when MacArthur was a student at West Point was, never cheat, never lie, never tattle"". Adhering to this edict MacArthur offered to resign from the Academy rather than answer questions from the Academy panel investigating hazing and harassment by a group of fellow students. MacArthur continued to develop his hard line against political and military intrigue by resolving to always do what he believed right even if he knew no one was watching. Further he was determined never to refuse to carryout the order of a senior officer - never be insubordinate to constituted authority. ""
