SORT BY Relevancy
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.
In 2013, Benjamin F. "BJ" Armstrong, a career naval officer and aviator, wrote/edited the book 21ST CENTURY MAHAN, published by the U.S. Naval Institute Press (USNI Press – @USNIBooks). Widely reviewed and extremely well received, the book was based upon the premise that the ideas presented in the writings of American seapower theorist Alfred Thayer Mahan were still relevant in the 21st century, more than a century after the publication of his seminal work, THE INFLUANCE OF SEAPOWER UPON HISTORY. Armstrongs book revived a lively discussion about the relevance and merits of seapower in the present day, and the idea that the tenets Mahan put forth in the late 1800s, were still relevant in a world being defined by new technologies and emerging world powers.
Now, in 2015, Armstrong has published a new book in what has become USNI Press's emerging "21st Century" series of books with 21ST CENTURY SIMS, based upon the career and writings of Adm. William Sims. A true among the naval leaders of the early 20th century, Sims is less well known for his vast published works on naval leadership, particularly as they apply to junior officers. Now Mr. Armstrong has collected and edited them, in a compact work that provides new insights into this fascinating military personality from a century ago.
This week, Benjamin Armstrong joins author, historian, journalist, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) on Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) to talk about his new book, along with his editorship of the new "21st Century" book series for USNI Press. This should be a lively hour of history, books, and publishing, and listeners are invited to call in and discuss their ideas and questions with both gentlemen.
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.
Leadership. It is a word that has less and less meaning in mainstream American society these days, and is often confused with "Management," which it is not. Leadership is the uncommon virtue and skillset which allows one person to convince and guide others towards a common goal. In no way a science, Leadership is nevertheless a craft and skill which does have elements which can be taught. This is particularly important in military organizations, where Leadership is often a life or death matter in combat. However, Leadership is also vital to the establishment and sustainment of chains of command, without which any military organization will collapse upon itself and be destroyed. And while Leadership is more of an art form than simply a set of rules to follow, defining it is often difficult. Therefore, one finds Leadership as a topic being discussed in professional military journals across the globe, in almost every written language. One such journal is the U.S. Naval Institute (USNI) Proceedings which, since 1883, has provided naval-minded individuals with a open forum to express ideas, opinions, and thoughts regarding a variety of topics, especially Leadership in the sea services.
To learn more how Leadership is defined, join best-selling author, historian, documentary filmmaker and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. His guess this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) editor Thomas J. Cutler, who is managing the creation of USNI's new "Wheel Book" series. One of these is Naval Leadership, edited by Cutler, a collection of Proceedings essays on the subject by a variety of well-known naval leaders.
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. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Nick Sambaluk (@HistoryNContext) to discuss his new book, THE OTHER SPACEV RACE.
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 War of 1812, was one of America's "small and forgotten" conflicts, much like the Korea in the 20th century. Ill advised, and really unnecessary for both Great Britain and the young United States of America (which was less than 50 years old at the time), the War of 1912 was a conflict that gained neither side much benefit, and diverted badly needed resources from other endeavors. Nevertheless, there were a number of intriguing and important lessons to be learned from the conflict, none more interesting than those derived from the British Chesapeake Campaign of 1814. A British squadron under command of Adm. Cochrane, raised habit for most of 1814 from the Virginia Tidewater to the waters around Baltimore, doing a surprising amount of damage and raising havoc against the seemingly hapless Americans. The British squadron took and burned Hampton, VA, portions of Washington, DC, and other towns along the bay, eventually only being stopped by the heroic defense of Baltimore and bombardment of Fort McHenry. It is a fascinating story, little known by most Americans, which almost went unnoticed during the recent bicentennial of the War of 1812.
To learn more about the War of 1812 and the 1814 Chesapeake Campaign, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author LCOL. Charles Neimeyer. , USMC (Ret.) to discuss his new book, War in the Chesapeake. His book is a new single-volume history of the campaign, and will prove enlightening for both academics and those new to the story.
Maritime Strategy has really been an American concern over the past century or so, as the United States began to develop its own worldwide empire and interests. It would be World War II and the Cold War that followed before the United States really began to become a dominant force at sea. However, since the end of the Cold War, America has lacked a cohesive maritime strategy, as US diplomacy and military operations haven't jumped from crisis to crisis. So as the United States prepares to elect a new president in 2016, it is well worth considering what sort of maritime strategy America wants as it moves into the middle of the 21st century.
To learn more about new developments in 21st century maritime strategy, tune into 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 Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) author Capt. Peter Haynes, USN (@haynes_pd) to discuss his new book, Towards a New Maritime Strategy. His new book is a study of how America has developed and implemented maritime strategy over the past hundred years, and where it is probably headed in the next few decades.
