SORT BY Relevancy
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.
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.
It is a sociological and historic fact that the defining moment for the present generation of Americans, were the terrorist attacks of 9/11. But as devastating as the attacks of September 11th, 2001 were in terms of lives lost and property destroyed, they were hardly the first use of terrorist/unconventional warfare on American soil during our history. However, this quaint notion that our time is somehow different from the past is so wrong that it is positively laughable. As early as the American Civil War over 150 years ago, agents from the Confederate intelligence services sought to burn down large sections of New York City with "Greek Fire" pyrotechnics. And during World War I, the United States of America was the target of what was arguably the largest and best structured terrorist campaign in our history. Run by German Army and Naval Intelligence in a joint operation, the effort ran three extremely successful sabotage cells on the eastern seaboard and Gulf Coast, along with supporting a clandestine cargo submarine-based shipping line to bring raw materials through the British blockade back to the Fatherland. In addition, these cells and their controlling agency back in Germany were also complicit in a number of security operations, and even had a hand in the famous "Zimmerman Telegram" incident.
The sabotage cell based in Baltimore is the subject of this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Netwok (@Writestream)). Tune in today at 1 PM EDT as bestselling author, journalist, documentary film producer, and host John D. Gresham talks with U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) author Dwight R. Messimer. Mr. Messimer is the author of the new book THE BALTIMORE SABOTAGE CELL, a compelling story of vast destruction by Germany against America.
"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.
Over the past century, mankind has been able to finally achieve one of their oldest dreams: to fly. In the 11 decades since the Wright Brothers took the first powered and manned flight, literally thousands of different airplanes have been designed and flown, for a variety of different roles and missions. And naturally, among those thousands of airplanes, favorites have emerged. Some like fighters, like the F-86 Sabre or F-15E Strike Eagle. Others prefer the "heavy iron" transport airplanes like the classic C-47 Dakota or master 747 airliner. But whatever your preference, you're probably going to enjoy the subject of 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 Zenith Press author Bob Dorr to discuss your new book, 365 Aircraft You Must Fly Before You Die. Part of a new series that Zenith Press is rolling out this summer, 365 Aircraft is a compendium of some of the greatest aircraft ever created, from nations all over the world. Certainly, you're in for a lively hour of aircraft, opinions, and favorites!
