Inspiring, outrageous, brave, egotistical - a thundering paradox of a man. Douglas MacArthur was one of only five men in U.S. history to have achieved the five-star rank of General of the Army. He served in World Wars I and II and in the Korean War, and he is renowned for stating that "in war, there is no substitute for victory." American Caesar examines the exemplary army career, the stunning successes (and lapses) on the battlefield, and the turbulent private life of the soldier-hero whose mystery and appeal created a uniquely American legend.
