Author Biography - A. T. Mahan
Alfred Thayer Mahan was perhaps the most celebrated naval historian of his era. He was the author of the author of numerous articles and books, including the landmark The Influence of Sea Power Upon History, 1660-1783. He was widely regarded as a brilliant naval theorist. From his writings, readers would never have guessed, however, that the renowned champion of the United States Navy hated the sea, and while an active-duty naval officer, lived in constant fear of ocean storms and colliding ships.
