Reviews

In a series of 16 collected essays,John Hattendorf provides insight into the interrelationship between naval history and maritime strategy, examining the intellectual history of its development, the use of history within navies as a means of understanding strategy, and the history of navies and their activities. This volume provides a foundation for further study in this field by combining past and recent research. The essays span a 25-year period of the author's association with the U.S.Naval War College at Newport, Rhode Island.

"… this collection will be stimulating reading for those interested in naval strategic theory and the United States Navy in the past century." -- Paul G. Halpern, The Mariners Mirror, Nov. 2000

Always thoughtful, his views are balanced and not without criticism even of his own naval college. Above all, they challenge US navy officers to rethink past concepts, to adjust to the new challenges of multinational allied interventions, and to remember that naval strategy is more than simply ordnance delivered on target." -- Holger H. Herwig, The International History Review, March 2001

"… provides a thought-provoking historical context to American naval power… a welcome antidote to the sound-byte analysis and oblique political manipulation that frequently obscure the fundamentals of national security. At least in the area of naval power, he helps one to get back to the basics." -- RADM Joseph F. Callo (Ret), SEA HISTORY 94, Autumn 2000

"… this wonderfully interwoven collection of essays is destined to become a standard reference… very reasonably priced, making it suitable for institutional acquisition… I recommend it highly." -- Ken Hansen, International Journal of Maritime History
