Clay Blair writes in a easily readable narrative. While there have been many past biographies about MacArthur, I found this one, published in the mid-70's, fairly relaxing to read. Some others are written like research papers and you feel like you have grind thru them just to complete reading. One facet of this book that I found very interesting was MacArthur's reign and influence over post-WWII Japan. I have been on the lookout for a decent summary book covering this period and this book did a decent job. ( )
