"This book is about the war-gaming activities of the Naval War College (NWC) in the late summer and fall of 1946 in Newport, Rhode Island ... [and] how the end of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War impacted the Naval War College in terms of changing its focus from Japan to the Soviet Union as the primary enemy in the Pacific Basin."--Preface
Governing the American Lake : the US defense and administration of the Pacific, 1945-1947 by Hal M Friedman( Book )

In this carefully crafted and meticulously researched book, Hal M. Friedman contends that US fears after World War II led the nation into military domination of the Pacific Ocean, turning it into an "American lake" in the hope of keeping the mainland safe from attack. According to Friedman, with the country still reeling from a bad case of "Pearl Harbor Syndrome," four departments of the Executive Branch -War, Navy, State, and Interior- succeeded in creating a new US strategic sphere in the Pacific Basin. However, while the departments agreed on the goal, there were many arguments about the means of reaching it. Friedman recounts disagreements about the best ways to secure the Basin against potential enemies, particularly a resurgent Japan and a hostile Soviet Union
