Japanese Capture Famous American General Escaping from Corregidor - March, 1942
Realizing that American General Douglas MacArthur was still in the Phillipines immediately following their surprise attach on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, the Japanese military organization under Prime Minister and Army General Tojo believed that the U.S. Government would probably recall or reassign MacArthur the newly appointed Commander of all non-Naval activities in the Far Eastern, Asiatic Theatre of Operations. This is the exciting fast-moving story of how General MacArthur, his wife and young son Arthur IV, were captured by the Japanese Navy immediately following their escape on a P.T. boat from the island fortress of Corregidor at the tip of the Bataan peninsula in Manila Bay, and how MacArthur was able to befriend and convince Japan’s Emperor Hirohito that continuation of the war between the United States and Japan should be ended as soon as possible. MacArthur felt it made no sense to go on killing people in view of the friendship that America and Japan had enjoyed for so many years prior to Japan’s decision to attack Pearl Harbor, which decision Japan made because President Roosevelt had threatened to completely cut off Japan’s oil imports unless Japan immediately withdrew its army from French Indo China. REVIEW: “Great story – wish it had happened this way.” Jeff Whited, Amherst, Ohio
