Good movie / pretty accurate
23 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

gerdeen says this movie is not historically accurate, but it hits many of the main points presented in the book 'An American Ceasar' by William Manchester. Truman and McArthur did butt heads over whether to nuke the Chinese when they poured over the border and forced US soldiers back below the 38th parallel. But the biggest issue for McArthur was holding the line without nukes, and he wanted to take several strategic points in China to do that. McArthur maintained he could not hold the artificial line that was the political border between China and Korea. He wanted/needed to invade China.

The movie I thought was a good one.
