Military justice books are to books . . .

The Washington Post has reported the death of Robert Sherrill, a journalist and author. In 1970 he wrote "Military Justice is to Justice as Military Music is to Music." (Sometimes incorrectly attributed to Groucho Marx, the phrase was actually the work of Georges Clemenceau.) Edward F. Sherman, later Dean of Tulane Law School, writing in The New York Times, called the Vietnam Era book "an immensely readable critique of the way the military dispenses justice."
