"Being in a ship is like being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned" – Samuel Johnson
For hundreds of years, the keeping of order and discipline aboard naval vessels was based around a delicate balance of privileges and punishment. Privileges included the daily distribution of alcoholic beverages such as grog (a mix of rum and water), while punishment included confinement (in prison barges or shackles aboard ship) and/or flogging. Given that life aboard a sailing ship was itself a form of confinement and imprisonment, the traditional means of maintaining discipline proved adequate during the Age of Fighting Sail. But the coming of the 19th century, and with it the revolutionary power of steam engines, completely change the character and demographic of enlisted sailors in the navies worldwide. Aboard the fighting ships of the U.S. Navy there were still rough men who performed primarily physical skills, but added to this were the first of a wave of technicians and mechanics. Nevertheless, these sailors still drank too much, fought and brawled, and periodically deserted their posts. It was for these men, the naval discipline afloat continued to be enforced.
And as the U.S. Navy expanded and contracted between 1850 in the 1930s, discipline afloat and punishment ashore also evolved. The first large U.S. Navy prisons were constructed, including the facility at the Portsmouth Naval Yard in New Hampshire, the largest such facility of its time. To learn more about the evolution and enforcement of discipline and punishment in the U.S. Navy between 1850 in the 1930s, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writeswtream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (USNIBooks) writer Rodney Watterson, author of the book Whips to Walls.
It is a rare mind, which can see through the eyes of a competitor or enemy at the moment of truth in competition/conflict. Such minds are treasured within military forces, though rarely cultivated due to the regimented lifestyles and mindsets of such personnel. So any book or other media which can provide military personnel the chance to look at situations through the eyes and minds of enemies often has value, long after the death of the author or the events depicted. Such a book is JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN. Written by Captain Tameichi Hara of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) shortly after the end of World War II, his book was one of a handful of such memoirs translated and published in the United States during the 1950s. Since that time, JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN has provided naval officers, historians and general readers with an amazing window into the minds of Japanese naval commanders during the Second World War, along with a primer on how to survive and prevail in combat situations of all kinds.
To better understand the value of books like JAPANESE DESTROYER CAPTAIN and the people who write them, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@Writestream at #MilitaryMonday) at 1 p.m. Eastern. He will be joined by father/son U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) authors and naval historians Tom and Trent Hone. Together they will tell the story that Capt. Hara and his original editorial team, all long since dead, cannot. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and comments, on a rare phenomenon in the military history world, which needs to be encouraged.
2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the end of the Cold War. Millions of men and women across the globe contributed to the end of the great East-West conflict of the 20th century, including a handful of national security specialists who helped shape policy and events. Some are well known, like Henry Kissinger, McGeorge Bundy, and Brent Schofield. Others however, served in relative obscurity, contributing their intellect and lives into making sure that the Cold War never turned "hot." One of these was Robert Komer, a World War II-era U.S. Army intelligence officer, who was one of the earliest employees of the new Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) when it was created in 1947. Working as an analyst, Komer would have a remarkable career that would span decades and have him serving presidents from Harry S. Truman, to Jimmy Carter. His work covered everything from strengthening U.S. forces and NATO, to helping run counterinsurgency programs in Vietnam. And through this wide variety of assignments and challenges, Komer acquired a nickname for his high-energy, and sometimes fiery style of work: Blowtorch.
To learn more about Robert "Blowtorch" Komer, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (USNIBooks) writer Frank Leith Jones, the author of BLOWTORCH. BLOWTORCH is a compelling biography of Robert Komer, and his amazing professional journey through the Cold War from the 1940s through to the Carter administration. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions on the book and Mr. Komer, as we remember the sometimes dark days of the Cold War.

Book Discussion welcomes author Cym Lowell.
In JASPAR'S WAR (Rosemary Beach Press; April 2014; $12.99), author Cym Lowell takes readers on a thrill ride to the most unexpected and dangerous of locales to uncover secrets that could bring down the U.S. government.
This is more than just about another book getting published. It's also about giving back, inspiring others and providing a bridge to healing for those wounded warriors who have put their lives on the line for the freedoms we all enjoy. As Lowell was completing Jaspar's War, he heard about Soldiers' Angels, a nonprofit organization with thousands of volunteers who provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the armed forces, veterans and their families. He was told there is a waiting list of approximately 200 wounded warriors, who, because of injuries sustained in fighting for our country, are in need of voice-activated laptops. That's all he needed to know.
100 percent of any proceeds from the sale of his book will go directly to Soldiers' Angels. His initiative is called: OPERATION: NEXT CHAPTER.
As a Vietnam vet, Lowell knows all too well the results of what war injuries can do to the human spirit.

My Guest today is: Clay Douglas & Mark Elsis on American Exceptionalism 4
Americans have more cars than licensed drivers, and gas-guzzling sport utility vehicles are among the best-selling vehicles. New houses in the United States are 38% bigger in 2002 than in 1975, despite having fewer people per household. There is only so much food, timber, petroleum, and other natural resources to go around. The global economy cannot grow indefinitely on a finite planet. The more we consume, the less will be available for others. Resources will gradually become more and more depleted, this in turn will make prices rise, which will become especially difficult for the poor, then this will happen to almost everyone at all income levels. The way I see it, we are shortsighted greedy thieves who are stealing from our future generations.
Every American needs to understand that the entire national press is controlled, and is simply giving you the "news" you are supposed to have. Very soon, all alternative sources of news, including this website, will be shut down. That time draws ever closer. Please go to http://freeamerican.com and www.shop.freeamerican.com to order my books and the new Free American Magazines.
"In order to put public opinion into our hands we must bring it into a state of bewilderment by giving expression from all sides to so many contradictory opinions and for such length of time as will suffice to make the [average person] lose their heads in the labyrinth and come to see that the best thing is to have no opinion of any kind, in matters political."
