    Book Summary The elder Heyst has taught his son that one's only condescension to life should be to watch it from a detached distance, never to partake in its action. Such a philosophy ingrained in Heyst during his impressionable youth leads him to withdraw from life. The Lessons of Inchon The story of Operation Chromite is a good place to briefly introduce a few of the many lessons that MacArthur offers contemporary students of leadership. By - Selection from No Substitute for Victory: Lessons in Strategy and Leadership from General Douglas Macarthur [Book].

    at Inchon cut the North Korean lines of communication, allowed the breakout of the Pusan Perimeter, and totally routed Communist forces on the brink of apparent victory. The amphibious landing at Inchon on 15 September , with its flanking movement using the indirect approach, is truly an example of brilliant generalship and military genius.   The U.S. victory at Inchon, however, also set the stage for a dramatic debate about the direction and goals of U.S. foreign policy in the early Cold War period; a debate that initially revolved around the forceful personalities of General of the Army Douglas MacArthur and President Harry S. Truman.

      Inchon is the beginning of a victory. But it is a short-lived victory, and it leads to catastrophe. The Americans have struck back with a skill and energy the North Koreans had not expected, but, in doing so, they soon overreach themselves. Using the same strategy of speed of attack that had won our great victory at Inchon, MacArthur strove to unite all Korea before China could intervene effectively. Partly because of poor intel from CIA, he was ignorant that Mao was already intervening and was infiltrating a formidable veteran Army into position for counter-attack, making speed.
