About this title


In creative first-person interviews spanning 100 years, the man Douglas MacArthur and his loves are introduced. Though a brilliant military leader, General MacArthur's romantic relationships failed in one romance after another, though not for lack of effort on his part. He wooed the fairer sex determinedly with grace, charm, and highly poetic words.

Some say, because of his close bond to his mother, MacArthur was unable to develop a satisfactory relationship with a woman for most of his life, except for a brief first-marriage. This may be true, for it was only after his mother's death when he was 57 years old, that he finally achieved a fulfilling and lasting love.

Interviews are in the style of a popular present-day TV journalist. With access to love letters and poems (all of which are given in the book), and the gossip of the day, "Bobbe Waters" probes the principals to uncover titillating details of Douglas MacArthur's love life. The interviews ultimately reveal a personal side of MacArthur never before exposed. Whether MacArthur treated the objects of his affection callously, or if his behavior was within the bounds of acceptable courtship, is left to the reader to decide.
