Résumé éditeur :

This edited volume brings together some of the most accomplished and respected naval historians writing today. The contributors examine how the navies of Great Britain, the United States, Germany, Japan, the changes posed during different periods of the twentieth century – the technologically most dynamic period in naval history.
Technological changes, ranging from submarines and air power to space platforms, dramatically century. The different sections in this volume – covering in turn the periods before the First World War, those before the Second World War, during the Cold War and into the medium-term future – examine how the great naval powers integrated these changes into their warship building and war planning.
This innovative and authoritative book seeks to make sense of the impact of technology on preparations for conflict at sea, in order to see whether recurring patterns can be detected from history and guidance provided for the future. As the book clearly shows, the proper integration of technological advances has been perhaps the most important element in determining the course of naval power over the past one hundred years.
This book will appeal to naval historians, naval planners and all those interested in the problems of strategic prediction.
