Some principles of maritime strategy by Julian Stafford Corbett( Book )

85 editions published between 1911 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brilliant exposition established British naval historian Julian Corbett (1854{u2013}1922) as one of the great maritime strategists. Corbett placed naval warfare within the larger framework of human conflict, proposing that the key to maritime dominance lies in effective use of sea lines for communications and in denying that use to the enemy. His concept {u2014} which regarded naval strategy not as an end in itself but as a means to an end, with that end defined by national strategy {u2014} makes this a work of enduring value. Principles of Maritime Strategy emphasizes precise definitions of terminology and ideas as the antidote to loose and purposeless discussion and the direct path to the fundamental data on which all are agreed. As Corbett notes in the Introduction, "In this way we prepare the apparatus of practical discussion; we secure the means of arranging the factors in manageable shape, and of deducing from them with precision and rapidity a practical course of action. Without such apparatus no two men can even think on the same line; much less can they ever hope to detach the real point of difference that divides them and isolate it for quiet solution." Much quoted and referenced, this ever-relevant work is an indispensable resource for military professionals, historians, and students

England in the Seven Years' War; a study in combined strategy by Julian Stafford Corbett( Book )

33 editions published between 1907 and 2012 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Julian Corbett (1854-1922) was an eminent British naval historian who focused on the analysis of historic naval strategy. After graduating from Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1876 Corbett practised as a barrister until 1882, when he turned to historical writing. He was appointed Lecturer in History to the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, in 1903, and was consulted on naval reforms during the First World War. These volumes, first published in 1907, contain Corbett's detailed analysis of naval warfare during the Seven Years' War (1756-1763). Focusing on the strategy of the British navy, Corbett recounts chronologically the major actions of the war, analysing in detail fleet movements and naval tactics in their political and diplomatic context. These volumes were the first scholarly work on this subject, and provide valuable information concerning the development of English naval strategy during this formative period. Volume 1 covers 1754-1759

Maritime operations in the Russo-Japanese War, 1904-1905 by Julian Stafford Corbett( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first public edition of a major work by an important naval historian. It makes clear the contrast that Corbett saw between the English tradition of the broad use of history in writing on issues of naval strategy and the 19th century German tradition of more detailed and technical records of military history. It is an important study of the joint strategic issues involved in limited naval warfare, all issues for modern sailors and scholars to contemplate"--Introduction

This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader.The Seven Years War (1756-1763) was one of the truly world-wide conflicts following the expansion of European colonies, with engagements spanning from India to Canada. As with so many of the European wars, the causes were a question of land and legitimacy. The ever-present simmering tensions between England and France, and the newly emergent Prussia and Austria, led to a conflict that dragged many other nations into the strife.Notable in this war were the brilliance of Frederick, who would earn his title "the Great" during these wars, and the eclipse of Spain, Portugal and Sweden as powers of the first rank. However, the policy of England, that of Pitt, was to limit the commitment in terms of men; priority was given to the Royal Navy, and an indirect form of colonial warfare allied with blockade was established. The naval intricacies, along with their political and land-based military corollaries, are illuminated in Corbett's two volume history of the English contribution to the Seven Years war.This First volume in the series focusses on the actions to 1759, including the warfare in the Caribbean, around the French and German coast-lines, and the actions in and around Quebec, leading to that city's capture.Sir Julian S. Corbett was a prolific author and authority on British warfare and more particularly the naval aspects; he was also lecturer in history to the Royal Naval College.Title - England in the Seven Years War - Vol. ISub-Title - A Study in Combined StrategySeries Name - England in the Seven Years WarSeries Number--1Author--Sir Julian Stafford Corbett, LLM.
