Douglas MacArthur: What Greater Honor

by Janet & Geoff Benge


Quick Overview

Everything in him wanted to stay and fight till the death if it came to that. In fact, when the order came for him to evacuate his first reaction was to resign his commission as Commander-in-Chief to the American armed forces in the Far East and volunteer to fight alongside the enlisted men.


Under siege on the island of Corregidor, General Douglas MacArthur received a warning from the enemy. “You are well aware that you are doomed,” the Japanese general wrote. “The end is near. The question is how long you will be able to resist. You are advised to surrender.” Of course, there was no way Douglas was going to surrender. Whether masterminding strategy and fighting on the front lines to secure Allied victory in World War I and World War II or guiding war-torn nations to recovery in peacetime, five-star General Douglas MacArthur faced every challenge with unwavering courage and resolve. The general began his honored army career by leading his fellow cadets at West Point and ultimately commanded all U.S. forces in Asia. Remembered especially for directing the fight against Japanese expansion during WWII and later governing the defeated Japanese people with grace and wisdom, General MacArthur won the respect of millions, both allies and enemies.
