About Bernard Brodie

A brief but generally accurate biography of Bernard Brodie can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Brodie_(military_strategist). (One point that it omits is that the family name was originally Brody and he changed the spelling of his name to Brodie.) Also he is the subject of a scholarly study, Bernard Brodie and the Foundations of American Nuclear Strategy, by Barry H. Steiner (Lawrence: Univ. of Kansas Press, 1991).
