Egeberg spoke about his experiences during World War II as personal physician to General Douglas MacArthur. He provided a brief biography of General MacArthur, and then went on to describe the battle of New Guinea, his responsibilities as surgeon of the command, and his contributions to the concept of a mobile army surgical hospital (MASH).
