    Centred upon a man who never participated in combat operations during his sixty-year naval career, this volume depicts the routine peacetime operations of the mid-Victorian Royal Navy, operations that have received short shrift in naval histories, even though they have constituted the bulk of the service's mission during the past two centuries. Not... more...

    This collection of thought-provoking essays by arguably the 20th century's greatest naval historian was first published in 1974, but their continuing relevance fully justifies this reprint.

  • Amphibious Shipping Shortfallsby Maren Leed

    Center for Strategic & International Studies 2014; US$ 34.99

  • At the Helm of USS Americaby James E. Wise Jr.; Scott Baron

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00

    Only the best officers are given command of U.S. Navy ships, and only the elite of these are selected for aircraft carriers. The USS America was the third of four Kitty Hawk-class super-carriers. Commissioned in 1965, decommissioned in 1996, she served three times in Vietnam, and once each in Libya, the Persian Gulf and Bosnia. This book profiles the... more...

  • Millions for Defenseby Frederick C Leiner

    Naval Institute Press 2014; US$ 24.95

    The title of this book comes from a toast popular with Americans in the late 1790s—“millions for defense, not a cent for tribute.? Americans were incensed by demands for bribes from French diplomats and by France?s galling seizures of U.S. merchant ships, and as they teetered towards open war, were disturbed by their country?s lack of warships. Provoked... more...

  • Small Naviesby Dr Deborah Sanders; Dr Ian Speller; Professor Michael Mulqueen; Dr Tim Benbow; Professor Greg Kennedy; Dr Jon Robb-Webb

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 149.95

    Whilst maritime studies tend to reflect the dominance of large navies, history shows how relatively small naval forces can have a disproportionately large impact on global events. From Confederate commerce raiders in the nineteenth century, to Somali pirates today, even the most minor of maritime forces can become a key player on a global stage. Examining... more...
