Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) was a US Navy officer and author of influential marine history and strategy books.

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 1 of 2.

Welche Geschichte erzählen die Kinderknochen, die zwischen Schutt und Schlamm auf einer Baustelle gefunden werden? Als werdender Mutter geht Ruth Galloway der grausige Fund unter die Haut. Bald stellt sich heraus, dass auf dem Gelände früher ein katholisches Waisenhaus stand. Was ist hinter den Mauern des Heims geschehen, aus dem vor über vierzig Jahren zwei Kinder spurlos verschwanden? Sind es womöglich ihre Knochen, die hier begraben liegen? Ruth ist wenig begeistert, als sie nach Monaten der Funkstille bei den Ermittlungen DCI Nelson wiederbegegnet. Schließlich hat er noch immer keinen Schimmer, dass sie ein Baby von ihm erwartet. Doch alles wird zur Nebensache, als der Fall das Ermittlerduo auf die Spur eines Mörders führt; eines Mörders, der sich lange Jahre im Schatten hielt, aber noch immer zu töten bereit ist, um sein Geheimnis zu bewahren ... «Schon nach zwei Büchern dieser packenden Krimireihe sind einem die beiden Hauptfiguren, die forensische Archäologin Ruth Galloway und DCI Nelson, so sehr ans Herz gewachsen, als wären sie alte Freunde.» (The Guardian)

Fighters Over the Fleet

Naval Air Defence from Biplanes to the Cold War

Author: Norman Friedman

ISBN: 1848324073

This is an account of the evolution of naval fighters for fleet air defense and the parallel evolution of the ships operating and controlling them, concentrating on the three main exponents of carrier warfare, the Royal Navy, the US Navy, and the Imperial Japanese Navy. It describes the earliest efforts from the 1920s but it was not until radar allowed the direction of fighters that organized air defense became possible. Thus major naval-air battles of the Second World War like Midway, the Pedestal convoy, the Philippine Sea and Okinawa are portrayed as tests of the new technology. This was ultimately found wanting by the Kamikaze campaigns, which led to postwar moves towards computer control and new kinds of fighters. After 1945 the novel threats of nuclear weapons and standoff missiles compounded the difficulties of naval air defense and the second half of the book covers RN and USN attempts to solve these problems, looking at US experience in Vietnam and British operations in the Falklands War. It concludes with the ultimate US development of techniques and technology to fight the Outer Air Battle in the 1980s, which in turn point to the current state of carrier fighters and the supporting technology. Based largely on documentary sources, some previously unused, this book will appeal to both the naval and aviation communities.
