John B. HattendorfAn original and significant contribution to the naval history of the United States. There is no comparable study that follows the thread of riverine warfare across two centuries of American history. Even more unusual, the author has focused on the development of an operational doctrine, a very significant and overlooked issue in naval affairs. His admirable simplicity and directness in style tend to obscure the fact that this is a work of enormous erudition in the field of American naval history.
