    General Douglas MacArthur, a five-star general, appointed by FDR to supreme command in the Far East, was a military genius who created masterpieces of strategy in the war against Japan. He was complex, a born leader, and personally brave and courageous. He was often contradictory; willingly routing the vet. Bonus Marchers during the Depression, yet economical of human life, suffering fewer casualties in campaigns from Australia to VJ Day than were lost in Europe during the Battle of the Bulge.
