Editorial Reviews

General Douglas MacArthur was one of America's greatest and most complex commanders a warrior so tough and determined that he helped win World War II with a simple promise: I shall return. MacArthur was a soldier's soldier: the son of an officer the star of West Point and the Army's youngest-ever full general. He was already a retired hero when he was recalled in 1941 to face his biggest challenge--defending an unprepared Pacific force against a seemingly unstoppably Japanese war machine. But everything about MacArthur's life was extraordinary; his army brat childhood to his rogue war in Korea and his magnificent stand in the Philippines to his head-to-head confrontation with an angry Harry Truman. With rare footage and interviews with MacArthur's comrades family and friends this compelling BIOGRAPHY program reveals the man who remains a hero to millions. DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

It's so very easy to condem someone. Let's just take a moment to look at the BIG Picture. MacArthur was a human being if I remember correctly. We all have our weak moments. Humans some times do make mistakes and he did make a few serious mistakes. If your not biased or overly prejudice, then look at the Real complete FACTS and Big picture of MacArthur. Let us not attempt to twist and distort the true facts. Let us read the whole historical book not just one or two small paragraphs in the book. If you want to take something out of context, then just read one or two paragraphs about someone's few mistakes. Just read the facts about this Great Great man purely from a historical view point. Gerneral of the Army Douglas MacArthur, dispite a few of his human short commings was not an Angel as some may believe. He was though, a True Military Genius in every sense of the word!

The man really had his moments of True Genius. A truly brilliant man and leader. Oh, leaders do make a few mistakes, but General Douglas MacArthur made so many great and intelligent decisions during world war II, Korea and in Japan that his human mistakes prior to WWII were blown into oblivion where they belong. His great decisions out weighed 100,000 times over and above the mistakes he made prior to WWII. Any one who can read and write and is not ignorant can easily see this. You would have to be deaf dumb and blind to read only one paragraph in a book and JUDGE a book only by its' cover, as some people are so happy to do. Gerneral Douglas MacArthur was really a true military genius and great leader who I have the greatest respect and admiration for. He was the best of the best Gernerals this country ever had. He was a God given gift to this great country and to Japan after the war ended.

My hubby is a LTC, he had nothing nice to say about MacArthur, but that doesn't mean that he didn't do a lot of things well in his lifetime. This is a brief biography with appropriate content for middle or high school. I found it interesting, as I am a middle grades teacher who doesn't have a whole lot of experience with much after the Civil War. I have posted a viewing guide for this video on teacherspayteachers website.
