Editorial Reviews

Booknews
British, Canadian, and US historians further the movement of military history away from battles by examining how nations used the non- fighting part of their maritime power during the period. Seven essays look at such topics as the British strategic sealift in the First World War, the competition and preparation of American and British merchant shipping 1933-39, and NATO shipping pools and the demise of the Canadian merchant marine. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
