D-n-i echo: preserving files from Chet Richards's late lamented website, Defense in the National Interest

A John Boyd bibliography

When I was writing my dissertation on how to apply John Boyd's thinking to the problem of counter-insurgency, a most valuable resource was the Defense in the National Interest website maintained by his friend and acolyte, Chester Richards. Weeks before I submitted the paper, Chet decided to abandon the website, and he invited anyone who cared to download the materials there. I did so for all the documents in my bibliography. (Others too have made mirror sites of D-n-i, but who knows how durable those mirrors will prove?) To these I have added other available books and monographs by and about John Boyd.
