Once upon a time, there was a quiet little village in the French countryside, whose people believed in Tranquilité - Tranquility. If you lived in this village, you understood what was expected of you. You knew your place in the scheme of things. And if you happened to forget, someone would help remind you.

Confiando en que resuelva el consejo de guerra como un trámite, la Armada encomienda la defensa a un teniente jurídico (Tom Cruise), rico, inteligente e indolente, cuyos ayudantes (Demi Moore y Kevin Pollack) sí se toman el caso muy en serio. Cuando estos abogados empiezan a sospechar que la muerte puede haberse debido a la aplicación de un cuasisecreto código de honor de los marines, topan con la hostilidad del comandante de la base (Jack Nicholson); entonces el teniente pone todo su empeño en llegar al fondo del asunto. La situación de la base en territorio enemigo es un factor fundamental en el suceso (y de hecho constituye la justificación del coman

MacArthur by Joseph Sargent( Visual )

3 editions published between 1977 and 2003 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General Douglas MacArthur (Gregory Peck), one of the most controversial public figures of our time, is the subject of this superb biographical drama which traces his outstanding career. In 1942, with his position in the Philippines made hopeless by Japan's destruction of more than half the planes in his Far East Command, MacArthur leaves pledging "I shall return!" MacArthur does return, with riveting victories in the Pacific and the deft handling of the democratization of Japan; he is also armed with Presidential aspirations. While serving in Korea, it is there that his colossal ego and insubordination results in dismissal by Truman in 1951. MacArthur is a compelling story which explores the many facets of his ambitious character. It clearly demonstrates his brilliance as a strategist; his lust for publicity and flair for dramatics
