MacArthur was not only a lean, chiselled military genius and master of strategy; he also suffered unexplained lapses. For example, he knew of the Pearl Harbour attack but neglected to deploy his Philippine air force, a failure which resulted in its total destruction. Further, the success of his Inchon invasion was all but undone by the Chinese hordes that later swarmed across the Yalu - a response easily predicted, disastrously ignored. American Caesar is gracefully written, impeccably researched and scrupulous in every way...a thrilling and profoundly ponderable piece of work...
