THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA

“[A] well-written, insightful portrait of a commander whose occasional military genius vied with an overweening ego that alienated his superiors in Washington and led to his eventual downfall.”  The New York Times Book Review

“Mark Perry’s enjoyable The Most Dangerous Man in America amply captures the general’s ‘proud and egotistical’ streak.”  Wall Street Journal

“[An] engrossing book on the great, though greatly flawed, general… fans of military history and general readers will have much to enjoy and to ponder: The author offers a vivid and convincing recounting of MacArthur’s tremendous skill as a pioneer of air-land-sea battle in the Pacific, along with ample evidence that ‘proud and egotistical’ MacArthur ‘was his own worst enemy.”  Washington Post

“[A] dazzling biography…[a] deft portrayal centered mainly on MacArthur’s World War II years.”  Boston Globe

“Without ever denying MacArthur’s flaws and mistakes, Perry revives the general’s reputation by carefully and positively appraising his role in some of the war’s key moments.”  Foreign Affairs
