Summary
Naval forces exist to control the seas and project power, often through the use of violence. This does not, however, include everything they have done or can do. Navies have always spent much of their time and resources engaged in operations that fall outside the traditional definitions of sea power. These activities have at times contributed far more to their respective nations’ security and prosperity than kinetic actions but receive far less attention than their benefits merit. In this book, an international collection of historians and strategists share new, or re-learned, perspectives to serve as inspiration for further study and to broaden the discussion on what naval forces can do and be.With contributions byOmar Eduardo Andujar-Zaiter | Jason Campbell | Alexander Howlett | Ranald Lindsay | James Martin | Walker Mills | Ignatius Onianwa Oluchukwu | Katina Ponti | Michael Verney | Ryan Walker
