    MacArthur by Mitchell YockelsonDisclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®com book review bloggers program I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”MacArthur by Mitchell Yockelson is a biography of America's general Douglas MacArthur who is famous for the word's I shall return a promise to the Filipinos MacArthur was a man who kept his promises and strove to live the life of a gentleman to live honorably like his forefathers This novel was his story from childhood to training at West Point to the Philippines to marriage and fatherhood His life is a tale of dutiful loyalty to the people he loved in the two countries he served the United States of America and the Philippines The whole world was honored to have such a man as America's general MacArthur was my first biography this year and I didn't know what to expect In my history class we had learned some of the basics about MacArthur but I'm glad I got to go in depth into his life I really truly enjoyed this book It allowed me to appreciate the struggles of the men who fought and died in war This was my first book by Yockelson The beginning was rocky but he held my attention and presented the MacArthur's life as a true biography as it should be presented I am glad it was presented as it was not as fiction which I feel would diminish the point of the book I am not a great fan of biographies but Yockelson put out a good one The novel portrays the protagonist and his family as following God It describes MacArthur as a faithful man He was loyal to his country and to God His faith was not uncommon during his time because many men find God in the midst of war I would recommend MacArthur to people interested in history or those who just want to get a look at this man's life story

    Confession time I know or knew very little about the most highly decorated soldier in American history I knew of him – mostly from caricatures based on him – and assumed he was a brilliant military mind wrapped in a uirkiness that made him lovable and brave As it turns out he was just that and so much This man of conviction largely unknown to me was the American rockstar of the two generations ahead of me MacArthur America’s General reveals the allure the mystiue and the majesty of the man who dominated headlines captivated audiences wherever he went and led the most powerful nation in war during his 52 year military careerIt’s a fascinating story – so that it’s true – and incredible to witness the importance of generational legacy that gets passed down from father to son Gen Douglas MacArthur was clearly a bi product of his grandfather and father and the lessons he learned from them – both directly and indirectly – guided him through his own journey of becoming the man he was called to beThis book is part of “The Generals” series from Thomas Nelson and though I’ve only read two thus far I’m uite enthusiastically looking forward to reading from the series from trudatmusiccomraw

    MacArthur was a biography of General Douglas MacArthur America's first 5 Star General I liked learning about him it was interesting to know that he fought and led troops in 3 different wars the first World War WWII and Korea America LOVED MacArthur As with even today's military the politicians in Washington get involved and they don't know how to run things so they make bad decisions which costs battles and lives Let the military people who know what they are doing run the war This was shown during the Korean War where MacArthur could see what was going on and tried to make decisions and Washington just wanted the war to be over and removed MacArthur at a critical time
