In Caesar's Shadow: The Life of General Robert Eichelberger

By Paul Chwialkowski | Go to book overview

frecommend that the War Deparunent discourage such action as being subversive of military discipline. 62

Partly because of this incident, MacArthur became convinced after Buna that Eichelberger lacked the loyalty of other members of the GHQ staff. Although his I Corps commander had courage and was an excellent fighter, MacArthur decided that it would be best to let Eichelberger sit on the sidelines until he learned to play by the rules. In the meantime, MacArthur requested the transfer of Lieutenant General Walter Krueger, and the 6th Army headquarters staff, to Australia. Krueger was untested in combat, but MacArthur felt that be would be a better choice than Eichelberger for future campaigns. Krueger had a reputation as a colorless, hard-boiled commander who followed his orders to the letter and, more importantly, disdained both publicity and the press. 63
