Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
This series is based on the book of the same name by William Manchester. Douglas MacArthur was probably the most controversial American general of World War II and the decades that followed it. His presence shaped the modern American military and his clashes with civilian authority shaped the relationship between presidents and generals forever after. This episode chronicles the early battle of World War II against the Japanese as MacArthur and a green American army faced the Rising Sun in the steaming jungles of New Guinea.
