Description - This People's Navy by Kenneth J. Hagan

In this scholarly history of the United States Navy in peace and war, Kenneth Hagan narrates the entire span of the more than two centuries of naval tradition and command from the fledgling Continental Navy to the fate of a 600-ship navy. He covers the evolution of armaments, ship design, the Navy's mission, and the careers of some of the Navy's most distinguished figures. Hagan also argues persuasively that for the United States, as a continental power rather than an insular one, the Mahanian insistence on achieving command of the sea with line-of-battle ships and later aircraft carriers is part of a concept that is and has long been out of touch with the realities of the nation's strategic requirements. This work acts as an appraisal of the role of the United States Navy in the defence of its own and others freedoms.
