Macarthur and Eichelberger Webinar

Untold Stories of WWII: LTG Eichelberger at Biak

General Robert Eichelberger was the best American ground commander in the Asia/Pacific theater. From Buna in New Guinea, across the South Pacific, to the Philippines, he masterminded a series of key victories that helped doom Japan. Operating in the shadow of his publicity conscious boss, General Douglas MacArthur, Eichelberger toiled in obscurity for much of World War II. But, throughout the war, whenever MacArthur needed results, he turned to Eichelberger. In June 1944, with the U.S. invasion of Biak floundering, and the viability of MacArthur's long-awaited return to the Philippines thus threatened, Eichelberger went to Biak to turn the situation around. This is the story of how he did it.
