Summary
"This book offers an objective and comprehensive account of the very public confrontation between a sitting president and a well-known military figure over the military's role in the conduct of foreign policy." "This book explores partisan politics in Washington and the political power of military officers in an administration too weak to carry national policy on its own accord. It also discusses America's relations with European allies and its position toward Formosa (Taiwan), the core of the dispute between Truman and MacArthur."--BOOK JACKET
