Product Description
At the beginning of the Korean War, General Douglas MacArthur was appointed as the commander of U.S. and U.N. forces. In 1951, MacArthur advocated using atomic weapons against both North Korea and China. At that point, President Truman fired MacArthur.

This assignment has students read Truman's justification for firing MacArthur and MacArthur's defense of his conduct. Difficult words in the primary source are footnoted and defined for struggling readers. Once students have read both sources, they answer questions asking them to compare and contrast Truman and MacArthur's reasoning.

Great as a homework or classwork assignment as part of a lesson on the beginning of the Korean War.
