- Changing trains at Terrapin Station...
Do please expand on this.Sorry but i consider Mac Arthur as a sort of mediatic clown of the american military legend .
He was a very bad tactician and strategist.
He was ridiculous in the Philippines campaign in 1942, he was nicknamed by his soldiers "double hidden".
He left his soldiers alone preserving his image trough the famous "i'll come back"
I think he was a very carrierist general with a very, very big ego of spoilt little boy (by his mother).
It's very surprising that he wasn't fired afer such a disaster werehas he was warned after Pearl Harbor .
How to explain Air force deployement by december the 8 1941? how to justify his behaviour? (no respects of orders)....
PI in 1941 was a difficult position for the US, what better options did the US have?
