A Look Back to See the U.S. Navy’s Way Forward

The Boston Globe takes a look at history to address future challenges for the U.S. Navy: “The Constitution’s War of 1812 Rumble in the Atlantic hints at our Navy’s future in three intriguing — and unsettling — ways. It provides insight into the menace of land-based sea power; the importance of long-range weaponry; and the indispensability of old-fashioned seamanship, tactical wizardry, and derring-do. How well the US Navy fares along these material and human axes will determine whether American fleets survive and win in increasingly contested oceans.”
