There was an English academic who was a very good strategist, quite prominent in the thirties, and whose name eludes me for the moment. Could it have been Liddell, or am I getting confused with the BBC announcer? I think that his given name was Basil. He predicted the Japanese 'island-hopping' invasions of the Pacific war. Can anyone else come up with the rest of his name? He may have been the source of John's quotation.
