This is the first time in paperback for this standard biography of Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King, who was the controversial architect of the American victory in the Pacific. Once asked if it was he who said, 'When they get in trouble they send for the sonsabitches,' King replied that he was not, but that he would have said it if he had thought of it. Never accused of having a warm personality, Ernest J. King commanded the respect of everyone familiar with his work. His is one of the great American naval careers, his place in history forever secured by a remarkable contribution to the Allied victory in World War II . 'Lord how I need him,' wrote Navy Secretary Frank Knox on December 23, 1941, the day he summoned King to take control of the Navy at its lowest point, in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor.

For decades, navies have been major sponsors of space developments for the purposes of secure communications and precise navigation: without satellite navigation a submarine-based deterrent force would have been impossible, and the accuracy of the Tomahawk cruise missile in the Gulf War was entirely dependent on such technology. This book chronicles these developments, describing the systems themselves and concluding with an analysis of future possibilities.

"Through colourful and lively historical illustrations as well as strategic theory, Gray shows how sea power, when integrated with land and air power, increases the combatant's opportunities and choices. With dozens of examples from the Greek and Persian wars of the fifth century B.C. through the recent war in the Gulf, Gray systematically demonstrates the ways sea power has been used, and how it might have been used, to win battles and wars. His thought-provoking commentary is certain to become essential reading for the makers of defense policy today. The Leverage of Sea Power is an important and original contribution to the science of warfare historically and in the nuclear age." --
