The back page has a nice color portrait of General Douglas MacArthur with heading: "SUPREME COMMANDER OF S. W. PACIFIC" (See)
Complete with all 36 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
wikipedia notes: In March 1942, MacArthur, his family and his staff left nearby Corregidor Island in PT boats and escaped to Australia, where MacArthur became Supreme Commander, Southwest Pacific Area. Upon his arrival, MacArthur gave a speech in which he famously promised "I shall return" to the Philippines. After more than two years of fighting in the Pacific, he fulfilled that promise.
