Wars That Shaped The World
Wars That Shaped The World
After being stunned by China’s Red Army, Douglas MacArthur wanted payback – MacArthur demanded President Truman allow him to use the US military’s deadliest weapon, the nuclear bomb. MacArthur wanted to drop 50. The president thought it over; and decided against it. It was the end for MacArthur but not the war. A bloody stalemate settled over the Korean peninsula.
