(1913-1986) US soldier and author of several nonfiction texts on military topics. His sf novel War – 1974 (1958) puts into the didactic fictional form of a Future-War narrative about World War Three his speculations about developments in Weapons and tactics. After an initial exchange of nuclear ICBMs, and an attempted Soviet Invasion of America, East and West settle down to conventional conflict dominated by much implausible non-nuclear gimmickry. [JC]
