Read his keynote address here: Appellate Review of Courts-Martial in the United States
"One of the novelties of the UCMJ was the institution, for the first time, of direct civilian judicial review of courts-martial. This was not popular with many in the services, who felt that it threatened command prerogatives. (In fact, the Elston Act’s Judicial Council, which provided administrative, not judicial, review within the Army, was an alternative that many judge advocates favored.) In the end, however, the supporters of real judicial review won out, although the course of debate was by no means straightforward."
