In "The Most Dangerous Man in America," celebrated historian Mark Perry examines how this paradox of a man overcame personal and professional challenges to lead his countrymen in their darkest hour. As Perry shows, Franklin Roosevelt and a handful of MacArthur's subordinates made this feat possible, taming MacArthur, making him useful, and finally making him victorious. A gripping, authoritative biography of the Pacific Theater's most celebrated and misunderstood commander, "The Most Dangerous Man in America" reveals the secrets of Douglas MacArthur's success--and the incredible efforts of the men who made it possible.
