James Scott - 'Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita and the Battle of Manila'

American General Douglas MacArthur, driven from the Philippines under the cover of darkness at the beginning of World War II, famously vowed to return. This is the untold story of his homecoming. Based on extensive research in the United States and the Philippines, including war-crimes testimony, after-action reports, and survivor interviews, Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita and the Battle of Manila recounts one of the most heartbreaking chapters of Pacific war history. James Scott, the author of Target Tokyo, a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist, joins us.
