This comprehensive three-volume set, authored by D. Clayton James, offers an in-depth biography of General Douglas MacArthur, one of America's most prominent military leaders. The series meticulously covers MacArthur's life and career, spanning from his early years and rise to prominence, through his leadership during World War II and the Korean War, to his later years and legacy.

The books:

    • Volume 1, 1970: Covers MacArthur's early life, his military career up to 1941, and his significant contributions during World War I and the interwar period.

    • Volume 2, 1972 : Focuses on World War II, detailing his command in the Pacific Theater, his strategic decisions, and the eventual Allied victory. This volume doesn't even look like it was opened.

    • Volume 3, 1985: Examines the post-war era, including his role in the occupation of Japan, his leadership during the Korean War, and his eventual dismissal by President Truman. The book jacket is not in great shape, but the book itself is in very good condition.

Each volume is thoroughly researched and richly detailed, providing readers with a comprehensive view of MacArthur's complex personality, his military strategies, and his impact on 20th-century history. This set is a valuable resource for historians, military enthusiasts, and anyone interested in the life and times of General MacArthur.
