Jay Marsh, Wall Street millionaire and grand old man of the diplomatic corps, takes a sentimental journey to the scene of his first triumphs and agonies, Manila, where as a brash young captain during World War II he served as aide-de-camp and confidant to General Douglas MacArthur.

Marsh sees beyond the glittery capital of today to the horrifying days of 1945. The retreating Japanese army had devastated everything in its wake.The city was set ablaze and one hundred thousand innocents were slaughtered. Marsh was forced to leave behind his Filipino fiancee and accompany MacArthur to Japan.

Now, as the senior statesman stands in the serene garden of the ambassadors residence, his mind reels back in time—.In the final days of the war in the Pacific, the Phillippines are retaken by the Allies under the command of General MacArthur, paving the way for Japans surrender. But for MacArthur, victory over Japan is only a stepping stone to greater glory: supreme rule over the conquered country. MacArthur enlists Captain Marsh to be his emissary to the imperial government, a mission that takes the junior officer into the shadow world of postwar Tokyo, and into a web of deceit as he discovers shocking truths about MacArthur the world was never meant to know.Masterfully written and highly evocative, The Emperors General is the story of MacArthurs bold and calculating transition from wartime general to American Caesar, and of his enormous ego, his personal demons, and the glaring miscalculations he made in bargaining with the Japanese.

And, in the person of narrator Jay Marsh, it is the all too human story of a young mans bitter coming of age-andof the conflicting demands of duty, honor, and love.
