This is a very good hardcover with dust jacket. Second Printing 1978 Little Brown Publishing. This copy is very clean inside and out. The pages are still crisp, clean w no markings seen. The binding is tight and straight. Black hardcover boards under jacket are also very good. The dust jacket is neatly price clipped inside front cover (see photo) but is very clean, still shiny, with only very light shelf wear. Medium octavo size or 6.25" x 9.5" with 793 pages.

This definitive bio and history presents Douglas MacArthur in all his glory, complexity and contradictions. A military genius capable of masterpieces of strategy along with inexplicable lapses, the embodiment of machismo who frequently wept, the man who yearned for public adoration yet who disdained the press. Considered one of William Manchester's finest work, it is complete, meticulously researched, and definitive.
Front and back endpapers feature a chronology and the book is extensively illustrated with maps, vintage photos and more.
