    When we hear Wooden Ships and Iron Men we think of the 1840’s and the sleek Clipper Ships that put the U.S. Navy on the map. But the three volumes of Wooden Ships and Iron Men in the series written by our guest, Commander David D. Bruhn, U.S. Navy (Ret) and published by Heritage Books  provide us a glimpse into a world well beyond 1840—the world of the Navy Minesweeper. Bruhn has provided a detailed, concise history of the ships that operate with little publicity, but are key to the safety of all war fighters nearby.

    Episode 150: Policy, Fleet Size, and the Navy Next

    in Military

    "If we cannot have the navy estimates of our policy, then let's have the policy of our navy estimates." ---- Lieutenant Ambroise Baudry, French Navy
    As our guest this week noted in his book Fleet Tactics: Theory and Practice, "These are the watchwords for the twenty-first-century American navy."
    As we leave our land wars in Asia and look forward to the future maritime challenges of our nation, what size and kind of Fleet should the US Navy have?
    How will budgets impact the size and nature of our Fleet, and how will that impact the ability of the Navy to meet what it will be asked to do?
    What are the major schools of thought on what should drive our Fleet design, and what does history have to tell us about where we should head, and what we should be cautious of?
    Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and a lot more will be Wayne P. Hughes, Jr., Captain, USN (Ret), who in addition to being the author of innumerable books and articles, is a Professor, Department of Operations Research at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA.
    Captain Hughes received an MS in Operations Research from NPS in 1964, and returned in 1979 and continued as a civilian instructor for thirty-two years, including 5 years as Dean of the Graduate School of Operational and Information Sciences, he is a Distinguished Alumnus of NPS.
    On active duty he commanded a minesweeper, a destroyer, and directed a large training command.  Ashore, he was Deputy Director of the CNO’s Systems Analysis (OP-96), and Aide to Under Secretary of the Navy R. James Woolsey.
