Talking about Naval History: A Collection of Essays
by John B. Hattendorf Talking about Naval History: A Collection of Essays
John B. Hattendorf

Talking about Naval History is the 19th book in our Historical Monograph series and marks the more than twenty-five years that Professor Hattendorf has occupied the Naval War College’s prestigious Ernest J. King Chair of Maritime History. The twenty essays, selected from his recent work, range widely across five hundred years of history and deal with four major themes: maritime history as a field of academic and professional study, European naval history in the classic age of sail, American naval history, and naval theory.

"This collection of essays illustrates the range and depth of Hattendorf's work in naval history." From a review by Corbin Williamson, Ohio State University, on the Naval Historical Foundation website.

"Any collection of essays by John Hattendorf . . . would be welcome; this one is particularly so."  From a review by Jeremy Black, University of Exeter, in Naval History magazine.
Talking about Naval History is now available. Purchase a copy from the Government Printing Office online bookstore.
