Mark Duggan was a man born to lead. As a second lieutenant during the Spanish American War, his heroic exploits made him a military legend. His bravery in the bloody trenches of World War I made him a national hero. When war broke out again for the U.S. in 1941, General Mark Duggan was the natural choice to lead the offensive against the Japanese in the Pacific. There the general would turn a shattering defeat in the Philippines into one of the most dramatic victories in military history. But it was during the bitter standoff on the Korean peninsula that Duggan would face his greatest struggle: a vicious fight to the finish against an American president fearful of triggering World War III. - Continuing the line of best-selling works by Robert Leckie, one of America's greatest military historians and novelists. - Second in a series of ibooks re-issues of Robert Leckie's military fiction novels. - Interest in World War II remains high thanks to the blockbuster hit movie Pearl Harbor, numerous books on Pearl Harbor, and the upcoming Band of Brothers HBO series produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, based on Stephen E. Ambrose's book.
