ON THE COVER
Too Big to Win

Why can’t America win wars? It’s been two-thirds of a century since we saw “Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur.” And, if that’s not quite how you remember it, forget the formal guest list, forget the long-form surrender certificate, and try to think of “winning” in a more basic sense.
