General Douglas MacArthur, one of the most controversial public figures of our time, is the subject of this superb biographical drama which traces his outstanding career.

In 1942, with his position in the Philippines made hopeless by Japan's destruction of more than half the planes in his Far East Command, MacArthur leaves pledging 'I shall return!'

MacArthur does return, with riveting victories in the Pacific and the deft handling of the democratization of Japan; he is also armed with Presidential aspirations.

While serving in Korea, it is there that his colossal ego and insubordination results in dismissal by Truman in 1951.

MacArthur is a compelling story which explores facets of his ambitious character. It clearly demonstrates his brilliance as a strategist; his lust for publicity and flair for dramatics.

Review This Product

A towering figure of history

Sat, 9 Apr 2016 | Review by: Martin I

It's a very good portrayal of MacArthur who Lord Alanbrooke (Churchill's chief military advisor during World War 2 and Chairman on The Chiefs of Staff) rated MacArthur the most brilliant general of World War 2. This said, his greatest accomplishment must be his achievement in post war Japan. His distractors will always throw up his firing by Truman due his constant talking to the press and politicians about the lack of follow through in the war against North Korea. But if history is to judge: was he not correct when one sees the present regime there now? The film shows his colossal conceit. But as someone said would you not wish to follow a general who had confidence in his own strategy? Montgomery was another case in point. All in all a very good portrait of this brilliant general who people forget was also the top student at Westpoint in 25 years and the youngest Chief of Staff in the history of the USA Army.
