Overview

From Robert Leckie, accaliamed military historian and bestelling author of classics such as Helmet for My Pillow, and Marines! comes this epic novel of the mking of an extraordinary American general.

Mark Duggan was a man born to lead. As a second lieutenant during the Spanish American War, his heroic exploits made him a military legend. His bravery in the bloody trenches of World War I made him a national hero. When war broke out again for the United States in 1941, General Mark Duggan was the natural choice to lead the offensive against the Japanese in the Pacific. There the general would turn a shattering defeat in the Philippines into one of the most dramatic victories in military history. But it was during the bitter standoff on the Korean peninsula that Duggan would face his greatest struggle: a vicious fight to the finish against an American president fearful of triggering World War III.

The General is a gripping, fast-paced portrait of a man whose public arrogance enraged presidents, whose private passions scandalized his family, but whose battlefield brilliance and unyielding courage under fire was indispensible in a world at war.
