MacArthur, Douglas
McGraw-Hill Book Company, New York, 1964. Signed limited first edition of MacArthur's autobiography. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated, frontispiece. Signed by Douglas MacArthur, this is number 359. Near fine in a near fine slipcase. A nice example. "MacArthur's career was one of the longest and most controversial of any American military figure, including active service as a general from 1918 to 1951. His genius as a leader was demonstrated most lucidly in his pioneering reforms as West Point superintendent; his bold and imaginative campaigns, with minimum logistical support, during the war against Japan; and, perhaps most important, his enlightened administration of the Japanese occupation" (ANB). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
