Comprising a series of essays written by some of America‚Äôs most illustrious naval names ranging from Stansfield Turner through James Stavridis to Norman Friedman, this fine collection of writings from the US Naval Institute‚Äôs archive provides an easy way for the modern naval officer to learn from history.
Strategy is a complex concept that is too frequently misrepresented in literature. The careful selection and editing of this collection avoids that danger absolutely. As in most of life, very little is achieved in naval operations without a carefully defined and articulated strategy.
The starkest and recently most memorable example of that in the overall military sense was the George W Bush inspired invasion of Iraq in 2003. Devoid of a strategy, the debacle it became was completely predictable. It is a pity that President Bush II and his urgers/advisers did not have the benefit of a book like this.
While focused on naval strategy, this little book is just as valuable for army and air force officers and, indeed, businessmen and women.
