I found this article while doing a Google search on a different topic. I thought some of you might find it interesting as Miller wrote the forward to H.W.S.’ second volume.

An American Armorer: George Augustus Miller, Jr.,. 1894-1983

[quote]George Augustus Miller, Jr., was an armorer.
His career began with World War I, peaked in
World War II, included the U.S. involvement
in Korea, and ended as the Vietnam entanglement
began. His major achievements included
the development of a resource-and-cost
-efficient bullet-core steel and the invention of
an incendiary bullet, both needed for Allied
efforts in World War II.[/quote]

There is a second article by the same author on Miller’s AP core developments:
