General Douglas MacArthur said our troops would be home for Christmas in 1950 during the Korean War. His ego and his staff’s acquiescence to his hubris deceived the American media and people. The truth on the ground was a far cry from MacArthur’s assertions. Read the horrific conditions our troops had to endure due to America’s inept military command structure. In fact, if the Chinese had been able to adequately supply their troops, America would have suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of world warfare. Listen to the author talk about a frightening episode in U.S. history then buy they book.
