Wolfowitz comments pretty extensively about Wohlstetter in the Tannenhaus interview
that Vanity Fair misquoted the other day.
If not for Wohlstetter, Wolfowitz claims, the Tomahawk might never have remained in the DoD arsenal.
The interview gives some fascinating insight into Wolfowitz's life and his journey through academia and beyond. For instance, Wohlstetter studied with Wolfowitz's Dad at Columbia. And Wolfowitz's Dad also taught Alan Greenspan, and introduced Greenspan to the then new field of econometrics.

My academic training is in classics, which I pursued as far as getting a Ph.D. My second interest after classics is German culture and history -- having studied the language, I worked a summer in a bank in Vienna, and was stationed as a German linguist with the Air Force in Berlin for two years. So you would think I would be able to understand Strauss. But I don't. I found the couple of books of Strauss's that I have picked up absolutely unintelligible. Is there a vulgarization-summary of his thought available anywhere?
