I have some issues with legendary Gen. Douglas MacArthur, whose dominance is always looming in my novel The Preserve. I share why in this new CrimeReads piece. I go there in my readings, too. I guess I have an issue with unchecked authority! But I also get to mention that champion of the Average Joe with the best name ever: Smedley Darlington Butler, former Marine General and author of War is a Racket (1935).
