HeckleMaster’s Pick Of The Week

From master storyteller and historian H. W. Brands, twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, comes the riveting story of how President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur squared off to decide America’s future in the post-World War II order. The contest of wills between these two titanic characters unfolds against the turbulent backdrop of the faraway Korean War and terrors conjured at home by Joseph McCarthy. From the drama of Stalin’s blockade of West Berlin to the daring landing of MacArthur’s forces at Inchon to the shocking entrance of China into the Korean War, The General and the President vividly evokes the making of a new American era.
