Most Americans, when they think about the Civil War, probably remember the great land battles like Gettysburg and Shiloh, not realizing that there also was a significant maritime conflict as well. From inland waterways to the deep oceans, Union and Confederate naval forces were engaged in a four-year struggle for control of the trade routes to and from North America. One key campaign was the Confederate attempt to interdict key Union maritime activities, particularly whaling ships which supplied important oil products. To accomplish this task, Confederate Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory commissioned and acquired a small number of armed merchant cruisers, mostly from Great Britain. Though few in number, these merchant cruisers harassed Union trade routes across the globe, and required the Union Navy to commit valuable resources to hunt them down. Along the way their captains and crews became legends in the annals of American naval history.
To learn more about the Confederate commerce raiding campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Dwight Hughes to discuss his new book, A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY. The book chronicles the voyage of the Confederate merchant cruiser CSS Shenandoah, which in 1864 and 1865, circumnavigated the globe on an epic wartime cruise. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to both gentlemen, in what will be certainly an intriguing hour.
Join host Dave Etter and assorted callers as we try and define what makes a good military spouse! Us guts do not have much in print on how to be that perfect partner while maintaining the standards set by the military branch we are forced to live with - so, what can we gleen from each other? This could get interesting, heated, nasty, sad, frustrating, fun.... who knows? You'll just have to listen and call in if it's during the live recording time!
MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Typically airs Fridays at 9am CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and always available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.
Since the first submarine attacks in 1776, naval warfare professionals have been trying to find effective counters to the threat posed by submersible warships. In the two and a half-centuries since those first underwater assaults, submarines have become arguably the most powerful and dangerous warships in history. In particular, the submarine campaigns of World War I and II nearly strangled Great Britain twice, and was a key factor in that the defeat of Imperial Japan. The resulting response was the development of a new kind of military action: Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW). Just over 100 years old, ASW is a combination of tactics, technologies, platforms (ships and aircraft), weapons, and intelligence fusion which seeks not just to destroy enemy submarines, but also their infrastructure and ability to operate. At best difficult, tedious, dangerous, ASW is an essential part of naval warfare today. Doing it badly or not at all is almost a guarantee of defeat when facing an enemy equipped with submarines.
To learn more about the development and history of ASW, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited respected U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Norman Polmar to discuss his new book, HUNTERS AND KILLERS, VOLUME1. The first of two volumes on ASW with co-author Edward Whitman, HUNTERS AND KILLLERS is a detailed examination and history of submarine hunting that covers Up to mid 1943. Listeners are encouraged to call in and ask questions of Mr. Polmar, in what will be a rare live media appearance.
The 1960s race to the moon between the United States and Soviet Union was one of the most exciting and technologically stimulating events of the Cold War. But what very few people know, is that in the 1950s Pres. Dwight Eisenhower was running a similar race with the USSR, to gain control of the upper atmosphere and low Earth orbit in space as the new "high ground" for military and intelligence operations. Even before Ike became president in 1953, US military planners had been considering the potential uses of extremely high-altitude flight and Earth orbit, and had a surprisingly good set of ideas to work with. But Eisenhower, deeply concerned over the intelligence "black holes" behind the Iron and Bamboo Curtains, needed certainty about the intentions of the Communist world to help the United States avoid a deeply costly strategic arms race during his tenure in the White House. What followed was one of the most impressive periods of technological development in the history of mankind, with Earth orbiting satellites and remote sensing technologies coming to the forefront.

Eisenhower's secret race to space in the 1950s, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST.

Question: How do you take a Navy from a force structure of just a handful of wooden cruisers to the most powerful fleet in history in just two generations? Because this is exactly what happened within the United States Navy (USN) in the late 1800s in the first half of the 20th century. Along with obvious answers like having the necessary resources and industrial infrastructure, there is the question of the people who manned it. One of the keys in the development of the USN's training, tactics, and fleet doctrine were 21 "Fleet Problens," run between 1923 and 1940. Fleet Problems were a series of full-scale fleet exercises, designed to explore and experiment new ideas for the US fleet, while providing officers and crews with a chance to operate under simulated battle conditions for extended periods of time. Most of the future World War II and early Cold War USN leaders participated in the Fleet Problems, learning many of the lessons that would allow them to achieve victory in the coming "Two Ocean War" that was coming.
To learn more about the USN's Fleet Problems prior to World War II, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)). Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Government Printing Office author Al Nofi to discuss his book, TO THE FLEET FOR WAR. Considered an "instant classic" within the Naval history genre, Nofi's book describes in intimate detail, the various Fleet Problems, how they were run and adjudicated, and lessons learned derived from the exercises that became the basis for the USN's World War II doctrine.

At the beginning of 2015, few people could have imagined the political and military events that would occur in the following 12 months, much less how much they would revolve and depend upon Seapower around the globe. From the South China Sea and the Caspian, to the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean, Seapower has made a massive comeback in terms of importance and for world leaders trying to exercise their options. What made 2015 so special however, as been the diversity of nations deciding to employ their navies in positive, decisive actions across the globe. Russia, China, England, France, Japan and dozens of other nations have deployed Seapower for everything from Freedom of Navigation preservation, to counterterrorism in the Middle East. And while the United States Navy and Marine Corps were there also, tight rules of engagement and highly limited foreign policies restricted their use. Clearly, for the first time since the end of the Cold War, worldwide Seapower employment has become a genuine and favored option for national leaders across the globe.
To learn more about Seapower in 2015, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM Eastern time. His guest this week will be Author, Game Designer, Historian and Naval Analyst Larry Bond. Together they will tell listeners about the major Seapower events and developments during 2015, and what might be coming after the New Year in 2016.
As we prepare to celebrate Veterans Day, it is important to remember that our service personnel through the decades, did not undergo their military service alone. From the first muster of the Minutemen in April 1775, until the present day, our servicemen and women frequently have waiting for them at home, family, spouses, and loved ones. Today however, military spouses and loved ones undergo their own unique experiences as they remain home, while their soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines go off to the other side of the world, and often into war.
But just how happens to a military wife when, "the men go off to war?" While there have been a handful of books on the subject over the past several decades, there is a greater question to be asked. Just what does it feel like to send "your other half" off to an uncertain duty in a foreign land? Especially one that could potentially force they and their families to pay "their last full measure" to America? Often sentences and paragraphs in books something do not convey the feelings of military spouses, which is why we will turn to poetry this week.
To learn more about the poetry and thoughts of contemporary militiary wives, tune into this week's special Veteran's Day edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author and poet Victoria Kelly (@vkellybooks) to discuss her new book of poetry, WHEN THE MEN GO OFF TO WAR. John will be joined bt Writestream Radio Network founder Daria DiGivanni (@Dariaanne) and Donna Lyons- McClellan (@Donnalyons), herself an author and military spouse.

As America remembers the 74th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, it is worth remembering that the eventual victory of the Allies over the Axis nations in World War II was as much a victory of industrial production as battles fought. In his 1942 State of the Union address to Congress, Pres. Franklin Roosevelt set a goal of building 60,000 combat aircraft in 1942. In one of the greatest industrial miracles in history, America built far more. One of the key contractors in that effort was the North American Aviation (NAA) company of Inglewood, CA, which is just a few years earlier had been a small airplane design/manufacturing concern. Led by a tough, no-nonsense maverick engineer and industrialist, James "Dutch" Kindelberger, NAA would build some of the most important warplanes in history to help win World War II. Planes like the AT-6/SNJ advanced trainer, B-24 Liberator and B-25 Mitchell bombers, and the legendary P-51 Mustang fighter. But what did the factories look like, and who were the people who worked there? Notwithstanding the standing mythology about the American home front during World War II, the realities of an aircraft factory during that time go far beyond the image of "Rosie the Riveter."
To learn more abou NAA and it's people during World War II, join us for this week's Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)). Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Zenith Press author John Fredrickson to discuss his new book Warbird Factory, a new photographic history of NAA and it's World War II factories/people. So join us today at 1 PM Eastern Time for what is sure to be an intriguing and informative show.
