Here is the synopsis of an interview at Berkeley in 2004 including a webcast.
Who better to deduce the lessons and folly of War than a man who was its Commander. Here are a list of his 11 lessons:
- Empathize with your enemy
- Rationality will not save us
- There's something beyond one's self
- Maximize efficiency
- Proportionality should be a guideline in war
- Get the data
- Belief and seeing are often both wrong
- Be prepared to reexamine your reasoning
- In order to do good, you may have to engage in evil
- Never say never
- You can't change human nature
Controversial, terrible, and flawed as he was, a great man has died.
