MacARTHUR AND DEFEAT IN THE PHILIPPINES. A fascinating study of Douglas MacArthur. Includes the joint Philippines-American military, defending Mindanao, Luzon, the withdrawal in the North, Manila, Bataan & Corregidor

Click to EnlargeMacARTHUR AND DEFEAT IN THE PHILIPPINES. A fascinating study of Douglas MacArthur & the defense of the Philippines & the defense of the Philippines, his crisis of leadership, and a focused study of one of the pivotal events in WWII. Including building the joint Philippines-American military defenses, defending Mindanao, Luzon, the withdrawal in the North, Manila, Lamon Bay, Bataan, Corregidor, and MacArthur's departure. Includes an excellent review of the Philippines Scouts and other Filipino units at various phases of the war.

This is a judicious and hard-headed portrait of a courageous general and a deeply flawed man. Born into a military family in 1880, and the need to measure up to the heroic example set by his father would be the driving force behind MacArthur's career. But MacArthur's best qualities would forever be undone by his arrogance, vanity, deviousness, and a truly breathtaking capacity for making enemies--President F.D.R. chief among them-- so that when MacArthur arrived in the Philippines in the mid-30s it was as an exile from Roosevelt's anger. Against all odds, he assured both Washington and the Philippine governments of the islands' security in the case of Japanese attack, and he constantly underestimated the Japanese military and overestimated the strength and readiness of the Philippine Army. 400+ pages; photograghs; maps; indexed.
