The years since 1982, have seen an intensified study of naval theory and history, as well as rapid advances in shipping and anti-shipping technology. Research into the origins of naval theory has produced this study of Sir John Knox Laughton (1830-1915), who, in a single lifetime, converted naval history from little more than a romantic narrative into a rigorous scientific discipline.Not so much a biography as a study of the evolution of naval thought in the crucial decades leading to the First World War, this book charts the intellectual revolution that took place at the same time as the technological revolution carried out by the world's major navies in the late 19th century.
