An excellent book that not only outlines his life it illustrates one man's part in our great history. From his fathers exploits to the Korean War....to a meeting with Kennedy. Gen. Doug MacArthur truly lived a remarkable life. The book does a wonderful job of taking you into his life without showing any type of bias. I would recommend this book to all who think they understood THE GREAT ONE!
Old Soldiers Never Die is an excellent source of information on the life of one of the most fascinating figures in World History. The book goes deep into the mind and life of Douglass MacArthur to reveal the reasons for his genius and his decisions. I believe this book is a mustread for anyone who loves World War history, or just history in general.
Awsome!!!!! Absoutly Outstanding!!!!!
This biography does an excellent job in grasping the amazing life of this incredible, misunderstood American hero. Perret, who has written several biographies on American figures, did not skip a beat in this book. From his days at West Point, to his ailing run for the presidency, this is an excellent documentary of this great man.
