It is hard to write a short non-scholarly review of Admiral Mahan's master work which to this day influences US and NATO doctrine. It is a fascinating analisis of a critical historical period and led to major changes in the naval doctrines of all the major powers before WWI. Interestingly India's adoption of a "blue water" navy concept shows his influence on today's events. Bill

Even knowing i havent read the book it looks neat and interesting. Plus the cover seems to have the heavy frigate u.s.constitution.

This is a classic that is just as valid today as it was when articulated. Its thesis underlies much US foreign policy for the past 100+ years. Few expositions have survived the test of that much time.
