Irresistible.... A necessary read for anyone who attempts to understand the man. --Joseph C. Goulden, Washington Times A no-holds-barred portrait of a controversial figure and a feast for World War II aficionados. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Praise for MacArthur at War As he did with his previous WWII narrative, The Admirals, Walter Borneman does full justice to yet another colossus of WWII. It took flawed giants to forge victory and this account of the legendary Douglas MacArthur, warts and all, is superb history and an enormously enjoyable read. You can't ask for more. --Alex Kershaw, New York Times bestselling author of The Bedford Boys and The Longest Winter Borneman's extensive research turns up interesting details about the history of the battleship...The subject matter makes the book sometimes difficult to read-as it was no doubt difficult to write-but Borneman's broad knowledge and sensitive touch make it an entirely worthwhile experience. --Booklist Walter Borneman is one of our finest historians, and in Brothers Down he has given us his most personal and affecting story-and one so immersive I often found myself holding my breath while reading his powerful account of the attack on the Arizona. It's that good. --James Donovan, author of Shoot for the Moon and A Terrible Glory
