He had witnessed the bloody horror left behind by the retreating Japanese army during World War IIs final days. And he had abandoned his beautiful Filipina fiancée to see his duty through.But not even Marsh could guess the terrible personal price he would have to pay for his loyalty. He would follow General Douglas MacArthur to Tokyo itself. There he would become the brilliant, egocentric generals confidant, translator, surrogate son--and spy.Marsh would play a dangerous game of deliberate deceit and brutal injustice in the shadow world of postwar Japans royal palaces and geisha houses, and recognize that the defeated emperor and his wily aides were exploiting MacArthurs ruthless ambition to become the American Caesar.

The Emperors General is a dramatic human story of the loss of innocence and the seduction of power, about the conflict between honor, duty, and love, all set against an extraordinary historical backdrop.From the Paperback edition.
