THE GENERAL VS. THE PRESIDENT MacArthur and Truman at the Brink of Nuclear War

by | Read by Scott Brick

History • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Scott Brick's narration shines as he delivers Brands's detailed account of the ultimate battle for military control between a struggling President Truman and a rogue General MacArthur. An even-toned delivery and moderated pace allow Brick to provide smooth passage through the convoluted events of this turbulent time when escalating hostilities in Korea made nuclear war a real threat. Brick's wise choice of calm understatement allows the natural drama created by these tensions to take center stage. Thanks to the talents of narrator and author, a broad audience will find this a riveting listen that goes beyond the simple historical facts to reveal the real men who, for a brief time, controlled the fate of the world.
