    Truman and MacArthur offers an objective and comprehensive account of the very public confrontation between President Harry S. Truman and General Douglas MacArthur over the militarys role in the conduct of foreign policy. On November 19, 1950, with North Koreas army largely destroyed, Chinese forces crossed the Yalu River, routing the UN forces and forcing them on a long retreat. Hoping to strike a decisive blow, MacArthur pressed the Truman administration for authorization to attack Manchuria and deploy nuclear weapons in Korea. Truman refused, and MacArthur took his case to the press. In March, with the tide of battle turned, Truman notified MacArthur that he intended to initiate cease-fire talks. In an act of insubordination, MacArthur issued an ultimatum to China. On April 11, 1951, Truman relieved him of his command.
