This brillant exposition established British naval historian Julian Corbett (1854-1922) as one of the great maritime strategists. In this work, Corbett placed naval warfare within the larger framework of human conflict, and proposed that the kay to maritime dominance lies in the effective use of sea lines for communications and in denying that use to the enemy. His view of naval strategy as a means to an end, with a goal defined by national strategy, makes this work of enduring value.
Principles of Maritime Strategy emphasizes precise definitions of terminology and ideas as the antidote to loose and purposeless discussion and the direct path to the fundamental data on which all are agreed. As Corbett notes in the introduction, "In this way we prepare the apparatus of practical discussion; we secure the means of arranging the factors in manageable shape, and of deducing from them with precision and rapidity a practical course of action. Without such an apparatus no two men can even think on the same line; much less can they ever hope to detach the real point of difference that divides them and isolate it for quiet solutions"
Much quoted and referenced, this ever-relevant work is an indispensable resource for military professionals, historians, and students.
