The Influence of Sea Power upon the French Revolution and Empire 1793-1812. Vol.2
Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) was a Us Navy officer and author of influential marine history and strategy books. His work "The Influence of Sea Power upon History", published in 1890, established the modern US Navy doctrine of maritime predominance: the higher the naval power of a country, the greater its global impact. Mahan s concepts of naval war tactics were adapted by many navies all over the world.§Similar to his other works, "The Influence of Sea Power upon the French Revolution and Empire 1793-1812" analyzes how historical events and developments determine who controls the seas. It focuses on British and French naval tactics during the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars.§Reprint of the original edition from 1892. Volume 2 of 2.
