He served in World Wars I, II, and the Korean War, and is famous for stating that "in war, there is no substitute for victory."  AMERICAN CAESAR exaines the exemplary army career, the stunning successes (and lapses) on the battlefield, and the turbulent private life of the soldier-hero whose mystery and appeal created a uniquely American legend.
