The influence of sea power upon history, 1660-1783 by A. T Mahan( Book )

280 editions published between 1889 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 3,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though technological advances over the last century have revolutionized warfare, The Influence of Sea Power upon History, 1660-1783 remains a classic text on the history, strategy, and comprehension of commercial and military command of the high seas. The first president of the U.S. Naval War College, Alfred Thayer Mahan demonstrates through historical examples that the rise and fall of sea power and the wealth of nations have always been linked with commercial and military command of the sea. Mahan describes successful naval strategies employed in the past--from Greek and Roman times through the Napoleonic Wars--with an intense focus on England's rise as a sea power in the eighteenth century. This book provides not only an overview of naval tactics but also a lucid exposition of geographic, economic, and social factors governing the maintenance of sea power
The life of Nelson : the embodiment of the sea power of Great Britain by A. T Mahan( Book )

129 editions published between 1897 and 2016 in English and held by 1,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) was an American naval officer, considered one of the most important naval strategists of the nineteenth century. In 1885 he was appointed Lecturer in Naval History and Tactics at the US Naval War College, and served as President of the institution between 1886 and 1889. In this highly influential two-volume biography, first published in 1897, Mahan focuses on Nelson's professional life and provides a detailed historical and tactical analysis of his naval career based on Nelson's personal correspondence. Through this analysis Mahan also explains and explores his concept of 'sea power', a strategic concept which was closely studied and subsequently adopted by early twentieth-century military powers. His book provides both a fascinating discussion of Nelson's achievements and an invaluable analysis of the most influential developments in naval strategy almost a century after Nelson's death. Volume 1 covers Nelson's career up to 1799
The influence of sea power upon the French Revolution and Empire, 1793-1812 by A. T Mahan( Book )

145 editions published between 1890 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Admiral Mahan passed away in 1914, his ideas and thoughts lived on in his writings, which spanned the naval strategy of his own times and the lessons learnt from history. They are still read today at the modern naval academies and the ideas permeate the teachings at Annapolis. A flag officer in the U.S. Navy who fought during the American civil war for the Union forces, his works have gained a fame that makes him the foremost of the naval historians of the late 1800's. As a continuation of his hugely admired and influential work, The Influence of Sea Power Upon History, 1660-1783, Admiral Mahan drew his considerable skill and critical eye to the naval operations of the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. As the conflict raged on land between the continental powers and France, Britain and the Royal Navy remained off the coast to provide a constant threat to French ambitions. Mahan draws the threads of the conflict together with his customary style and attention to detail to divine the methods and actions that led to the dominance of the Royal Navy during the period. This first volume concentrates on the actions of the French revolutionary period up to 1801 and the accession of Napoleon to a position of prime power. The skirmishes, battles and blockades are described in great detail and illustrated with numerous illustrations. A masterwork by the foremost naval theorist - highly recommended
Sea power in its relations to the War of 1812 by A. T Mahan( Book )

60 editions published between 1905 and 2016 in English and held by 1,369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) was an American naval officer, considered one of the most important naval strategists of the nineteenth century. In 1885 he was appointed Lecturer in Naval History and Tactics at the US Naval War College, and served as President of the institution between 1886 and 1889. His series of books examining the role of sea power in history influenced the rapid growth of international navies in the period before World War I. This two-volume study of the Anglo-American war of 1812 was first published in 1905. Mahan examines the causes of the conflict, arguing that its roots went back to the seventeenth century. Although naval battles in the war of 1812 were small-scale rather than large fleet actions, Mahan shows that they were nevertheless crucial to the outcome. Volume 1 covers the background to the war - commercial relations, and Britain's war with France
