Chris Blaker, January 20, 2015 (view all comments by Chris Blaker)
Excellent biography. The scope of his life was truly epic, leadership in three major wars and reshaping Japanese society after WWII. MacArthur led a dramatic life and Manchester crafted the raw material of that life into an informative and entertaining read. My only criticism of the book is the lack a guide to the figures in MacArthur's life, a guide to at least the staff officers he had in the Pacific would have been useful considering they're introduced once and then most referred to by their last names for the rest of the book.
