Gwynne Dyer is the spelling. He was involved in the creation, writing
and presentation of the seven part National Film Board of Canada
series "War", which was seen in the U.S. on PBS. His book _War_ was
published by Crown Publishers, N.Y. in 1985. He was born in
Newfoundland, Canada, joined the Canadian navy 1t 17 and also served
in the British and American navies. He graduated from Memorial
University (Newfoundland) with a B.A., earned a M.A., from Rice and
then a Ph.D. in war studies from University of London.

The correct spelling is "Gwynne Dyer". This is from the book 'War', the
companion book to the series.
