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.
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.
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.

Philosopher Steve Katz presents an introduction to the most controversial field of investigation pursued by Wilhelm Reich in his last decade of work. In the aftemath of the "Oranur Experiment," new light was cast on religious belief, natural spirituality, and occult philosophy. A book length treatment is on Dr. Katz's blog "Harbors for Life." The door had opened with Reich's book "The Murder of Christ." In the "Introduction" to that book he states: "The Oranur Experiment, beginning 1947, has unexpectedly provided some basic solutions to emotional and social problems of man, solutions which have been entirely inaccessible heretofore. An extensive publication of the emotional implications of the Oranur Experiment is in preperation. THE MURDER OF CHRIST may well serve as an introduction of biographical background material to Oranur." - (N.Y., Noonday Press, 1971). See also, "Alone," a tape recorded by Reich (obtainable from the WR Musuem in Rangeley, Maine). In that taped monologue, Dr. Reich stated that there was not a single co-worker or student who understood the depths of the "Oranur Experiment."
