    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Norman Polmar – HUNTERS AND KILLERS

    in History

    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.

    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Nick Sambaluk – THE OTHER SPACE RACE

    in History

    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.


    To learn more about Pres. 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. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D.

  • Military Monday with John D. Gresham and Author Al Nofi

    in History

    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.

    Military Monday Veterans Day Special with USNI Press Author/Poet Victoria Kelly

    in Military

    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.
