General Douglas MacArthur: Return Of A Legend DVD
General Douglas MacArthur was one of America's greatest and most complex commanders, a warrior so tough and determined that he helped win World War II with a simple promise: I shall return.
MacArthur was a soldier's soldier: the son of an officer, the star of West Point, and the Army's youngest-ever full general. He was already a retired hero when he was recalled in 1941 to face his biggest challenge--defending an unprepared Pacific force against a seemingly unstoppably Japanese war machine. But everything about MacArthurís life was extraordinary; his army brat childhood to his rogue war in Korea, and his magnificent stand in the Philippines to his head-to-head confrontation with an angry Harry Truman.
With rare footage and interviews with MacArthur's comrades, family, and friends, this compelling BIOGRAPHY® program reveals the man who remains a hero to millions.
Korea: The Forgotten War DVD
Personal stories and sensational combat footage make this the definitive account of the war that many feared would erupt into WWIII.
At the end of World War II, few Americans dreamed that less than five years later the nation would once again be involved in a bloody overseas conflict. Yet June 25, 1950 marked the beginning of a war like no other America had ever fought.
KOREA: THE FORGOTTEN WAR explores the long struggle half a world away, from the forces that shattered the postwar peace to the delicate resolution which set the stage for many of the tensest moments of the Cold War. See dramatic footage of U.S. forces in action as Marines execute a brilliant amphibious landing at Inchon. Follow the troops as they push the North Koreans to the Yalu River, then face overwhelming odds as China sends hundreds of thousands of soldiers over the border in a move that many thought might signal the beginning of World War III.
With dramatic footage captured by combat cameras and first person accounts from soldiers, this is a fascinating examination of one of the most important events of modern times.
