Description

Veteran naval and military historian Padfield contends that maritime power can explain the relative influence of nations in the modern world. He cites the rise of the British, Dutch, and later the United States and the failure of the Habsburgs, Napoleon, and the Nazi as examples. He also argues that sea power changes the nature of the societies that possess it, that they acquire liberty, flexibility, and enterprise.show more
