Author and major general (ret) Harry W. Brooks, Jr. was born May 17, 1928, in Indianapolis, Indiana. He attended Crispus Attucks High School, graduating in 1947. After graduation he joined the United States Army, and soon Brooks was invited to Officer Candidates School (OCS) and received his commission in 1949.
