The purpose of this paper is to take a second look at the leadership of General Douglas MacAurthur since the outbreak of World War II. In order to do this, it will be necessary to review the events in the general’s career through World War II, during the occupation of Japan, and the war in Korea. This study will consider also the reasoning behind many of the decisions and movements made by General MacArthur. This will mean a study of the general’s personal qualities and dominant characteristics in order to gain insight into the behavior which influence these moves.
