U.S. naval strategy in the 1990s selected documents ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 206 libraries worldwide
The eight documents in this collection are the key published statements that the Navy's leadership created during the 1990s to explain itself to the men and women of the Navy and, in several instances, to Congress, and to the general public. This collection of documents, reflecting the evolution of official thinking within the United States Navy and Marine Corps during the post Cold War era concerning the fundamental missions and strategy of the sea services, is part of a larger project designed to bring greater transparency to an important dimension of our recent naval history. In the present volume, Newport Paper 27, covering the decade of the 1990s, Professor Hattendorf assembles for the first time in a single publication all the major naval strategy and policy statements of this period. Though all are public documents, most of these statements remain very little known and relatively inaccessible, at any rate outside the Navy itself. They are also not always easy to interpret, reflecting as they often do subtle shifts in emphasis or the nuances of internal bureaucratic argument rather than broadly understandable major changes in strategic thought or practice. Accordingly, the documents are accompanied by an introductory essay that attempts to put them in the proper historical and institutional perspective, as well as by a brief commentary for each that provides additional pertinent information and attempts to assess wider significance.
Faces of the Naval War College : an illustrated catalogue of the U.S. Naval War College's collection of portrait paintings and busts by Naval War College (U.S.) ( Book )

War at sea in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
"Richard Unger identifies two periods in the development of navies between 1000 and 1650 in Europe, the first running from the late tenth to the thirteenth century, when naval activity was carried on by militias and local figures, including ship-owners and merchants, and the second running from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century, a period which saw the growth of entrepreneurial navies, the development of states, and increasing government interest in force at sea." "Wide-ranging in place and time, yet tightly focused on particular concerns, these new and original specialist articles show how observations on the early history of warfare based on the relatively stable conditions of the late seventeenth century ignore the realities of war at sea in the middle ages and renaissance. In these studies, naval historians firmly grounded in the best current understanding of the period take account of developments in ships, guns and the language of public policy on war at sea, and in so doing give a stimulating introduction to five hundred years of maritime violence in Europe."--Jacket.
U.S. naval strategy in the 1970s selected documents ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 195 libraries worldwide
U.S. Naval Strategy in the 1970s: Selected Documents is the second in a projected four volume set of authoritative documents on U.S. Navy strategy and strategic planning. The first volume in this series, U.S. Naval Strategy in the 1990s: Selected Documents, Newport Paper 27, also edited by Professor Hattendorf, appeared in September 2006. The current volume was originally intended to include documents relating to the development of the Navy's Maritime Strategy during the 1980s, but the bulk of relevant material has made it advisable to dedicate a separate volume to that period. A final volume will then cover documents from the 1950s and 1960s. When combined with Professor Hattendorf's authoritative narrative of the genesis and development of the Maritime Strategy, The Evolution of the U.S. Navy's Maritime Strategy, 1977-1986, Newport Paper 19, these volumes will provide for the first time a comprehensive picture of the evolution of high-level U.S. Navy (and to some extent U.S. Marine Corps) strategic thinking over the half-century following the end of World War II. Within the broad context of the multiple layers of change and development that were taking place within the U.S. Navy during the 1970s, the five documents selected for this volume represent the key statements of strategic and doctrinal thinking within the service. These five documents are very different in approach, style, and purpose; nevertheless, they all document gradual and consistent development of one very significant thread in American naval thinking during the Cold War.
