It is the book that in a very real way America has been waiting for.
It is Everyman s Mac Arthur, the full-length story of the boy, the man, the General, FRAZIER HUNT S friendship with Doug las Mac Arthur began on the battlefields of Franqe during World War I.
If was to be sold it would possibly be worth 9 USD (based on the daily revenue potential of the website over a 12 month period).
Toward evening the little world about the lonely post of Fort Wingate became afire with color.
The boom of the sunset $ gun rolled across the parade ground after the clear notes of the bugle sounding retreat.

It is the story also of that broad seg ment of American history which Doug las Mac Arthur personally did so much to write.
There never has been a book quite like this with its power and sweep and fierce passion for the truth.It was almost as if he could remember far back beyond even his birth: remember Abraham Lincoln, the charge up Mission Ridge, the high mountains of the North West, the mule trains and dusty troopers, marching infantrymen and bearded scouts and the pungent smell of sweaty cavalry horses, the echoes of sunset guns and bugles sounding all the day through from re veille to taps.On a May day in 1862, when Douglas father, Arthur Mac- Arthur, was about to turn 17, he had journeyed the long way from Milwaukee to Washington, with a letter of introduction from the Wisconsin governor to Abraham Lincoln.There was no coddling of army wives and army brats in those hard-bitten days.They all shared the hard ships, the lonely years and eternal fears with the men in their dusty blue uniforms. is hosted in on a server with an IP address of 89.1.
