For those who were not aware of Roger Spiller's passing last week:
As one of T. Harry Williams' last students at LSU, he was one of the few remaining links to that department's golden age of military history. As I'm sure his many students will attest, Roger was brilliant and demanding, yet collegial and supportive. His military thought and theory course at KU stood as a keystone in that department's graduate program, and he graciously agreed to serve as a committee member for many of us. His feedback was always critical, thorough and, above all, helpful. I am sure I speak for many when I say he will be missed.
