    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Dwight Hughes – A CONFEDERATE BIOGRAPHY

    in History

     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.

    Military Monday with Host John D. Gresham and USNI Press Author Robert Harder

    in History

    World War II was very much a "coming out" for the men and missions of today's U.S. Air Force (USAF). Led by legendary airpower pioneers like Hap Arnold, Curtis LeMay and Jimmy Dolittle, the Army Air Force (AAF) of the 1940s grew by leaps and bounds in the 1940s, into the most destructive fighting force in history. But the majority of the fighting and dying was done by a young AAF officers who came of age in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Three of the most outstanding of these young officers were Paul Tibbets, "Dutch" Van Kirk, and Thomas Ferebee, who flew on the very first strategic bombing mission into France in 1942, and were part of the crew of the B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay" which dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima in August 1945. The story of these three amazing young man is both compelling and historic, and worthy of a good book.


    To learn more about the men known as "the Three Musketeers of the AAF", 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.

Tonight we are discussing the relationships of Blacks/Africans & the United States Military. Should we go fight for a country who denies us our basic human rights? Are we really going into the military because we love this country or is it because we lack opportunities? Why are the veterans of this country treated the worse when they have served the country? What about all of the mental issues that the vets face when they return home & are put on all types of medication? Why do the recruiters target the schools in the lower income neighborhood? We will answer these questions & more tonight. Call in at 9PM sharp 917-889-3009 if you want to get in on the topic. Press "1" if you want to speak on it!!! Don't meet me there, beat me there.

    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Steven Pomeroy

    in Military

    By the 1970s, strategic weapons planners were attempting to find new ways to maintain survivable and credible deterrence forces. Submarines carrying ballistic missiles and bombers armed with gravity bombs and cruise missiles were survivable enough, but land-based ballistic missiles in silos were rapidly becoming vulnerable to new, highly accurate strategic weapons. The Soviet Union began to invest in rail and truck-based Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs), but US plans for similar ICBM basing schemes never came to fruition. Why is an important question today, as America finally begins a long overdue modernization of its strategic deterrent forces. So a look back at the basing schemes and arguments of the 1970s is both a valid and important discussion as plans go forth for a new generation of US ICBMs.


    To learn more about the development and history of US strategic weapons basing, 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 Steven Pomeroy to discuss his new book, A ROAD UNTAKEN. A ROAD UNTAKEN is a detailed examination and history of mobile ICBM basing studies and decisions in the 1970s, and their relevance today.

    Military Monday with USNI Press Authors Geoffrey Rossano and Thomas Wildenberg

    in History

    Popular history tells us that US Naval aviation developed from early experiments with flight decks on ships, into the vast carrier fleets of World War II. But in fact, the first U.S. Navy/Marine Corps combat aviation operations involve something for different from the great aircraft carrier operations of the mid-20th century. Rather than supporting the fleet, during World War I naval aviation was focused on a single basic target set: German U-boat and their supporting infrastructure. Just after the American entry into the Great War, early naval aviation options focused on dealing with the threat of German U-boats, which were strangling communications between the New World and Europe. And when it was discovered that early aircraft were ineffective against submarines at sea, U.S. Navy efforts turned to attacking their home ports in Belgium.


    To learn more about the development and history of US naval aviation andstrategic bombing, 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) authors Thomas Wildenberg and Geoffrey Rossano to discuss his new book, STRIKING THE HORNETS' NEST. STRIKING THE HORNETS' NEST is a detailed examination and history of early US Naval aviation combat operations, and America's first real efforts towards a strategic bombing force and campaign. Look forward to learning something new during what is going to be a fascinating hour on Military Monday.
