MacArthur relates the extraordinary account of General Douglas MacArthur (Gregory Peck), one
of the greatest and most controversial generals in American History. The film follows MacArthur's career from his
departure from Corregidor in 1942 before the Phillipines fell, through his triumphant return as supreme commander
of Allied forces in the Pacific, to his ultimate alienation of President Truman as a result of the Korean War policy.
