Product description

John Knox Laughton created modern naval history to harmonize the academic standards of the new English historical profession with the strategic and doctrinal needs of the contemporary Royal Navy. His correspondents included major figures in both the historical and the naval professions: Alfred T. Mahan, Samuel Rawson Gardiner, Julian Corbett, Cyprian Bridge and many others. This volume should be of particular interest to those involved in the development of naval history and naval theory.
