9780062287946: Supreme Commander: MacArthur's Triumph in Japan

“Morris tells in dramatic fashion how this ultimate warrior, almost overnight, became the ultimate peacemaker, turning a devastated, militarized Japan into a functioning democracy in five years without firing a shot.” (James Bamford, author of Body of Secrets and The Shadow Factory)

“A fascinating study of the greatest success of Douglas MacArthur, one of the most consequential and controversial Americans of the twentieth century.” (Gautam Mukunda, author of Indispensable: When Leaders Really Matter)

“Seymour Morris Jr. has done General MacArthur’s reputation a great favor by spotlighting his now nearly forgotten service as the American viceroy in postwar Japan. With entertaining prose and good research, he shows us how MacArthur brilliantly midwifed devastated Japan’s rebirth as a modern, democratic state.” (John Steele Gordon, author of Empire of Wealth)

“The story he tells is a fascinating one” (The New York Times Book Review)

“MacArthur was more right than wrong as the post-war ruler of occupied Japan. A very readable and instructional treatment of a misunderstood figure. ” (Evan Thomas, author of Ike's Bluff)

“This remarkable book tells us how America -- and a great general -- revealed to the world that peace can be waged as triumphantly -- and far more creatively -- than war.” (Thomas Fleming, author of A New Understanding of the Civil War)
