General-of-the-Army Douglas MacArthur was a complex man whose behaviors seem contradictory on the surface. In fact, he demonstrated an enduring pattern of perceiving, relating to, and thinking about himself and his environment. This consistent personality is evident across a wide range of social and personal contexts and can be traced back to his developmental childhood and adolescent years. This research recounts MacArthur’s personality development from childhood, investigates his last military campaign, and, finally, applies the diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder to the assembled data. Upon reflection, MacArthur’s apparent behavioral inconsistencies are reconciled within this clinical framework. Finally, organizational, heuristic and predictive implications are drawn from this research. Academic and operational military uses are suggested.

Providing comprehensive coverage of the literature on the Southwest Pacific Campaign of World War II, this book includes both a historiographical narrative and an annotated bibliography of over 1500 entries. Part I, the historiographical narrative, includes a general survey and review of the works listed in Part II, the annotated bibliography. The historiographical survey features critical analysis and an evaluation of the literature, makes an effort to place each work in context, and also points to gaps in the literature. The bibliography section includes descriptive and evaluative annotations. Works cited in Part I are cross-referenced to Part II. The book reviews, evaluates, and integrates a comprehensive collection of popular and scholarly literature on the Southwest Pacific Campaign. Coverage includes operations in all dimensions—land, sea, air, underwater, and combinations of these. The work covers personnel and their experiences, and includes memoirs, diaries, autobiographies, biographies, and oral histories. It also covers intelligence matters, diplomacy, logistics and supply, and cultural aspects, such as journalism, fiction, film, and art. Available archival, research, and library facilities and materials are also described. There is an introductory historical essay, a chronology, and comprehensive indexes.
