By the middle of the nineteenth century, the North-West Passage, a trade route from the Atlantic to the Pacific, had been sought for centuries without success. The Franklin expedition of 1845 became the latest victim, and Irish naval officer Sir Robert John Le Mesurier McClure (1807-73) took part in the attempts to ascertain its fate. His ship, H.M.S. Investigator, spent the years 1850-4 in the Arctic, and in the course of their search for the lost expedition, the crew discovered the North-West Passage. Upon his return to England, following the loss of the Investigator to pack ice, McClure handed over his journals to author and fellow officer Sherard Osborn (1822-75), who prepared this narrative of the pioneering expedition. First published in 1856, the work remains a compelling account of Arctic exploration, revealing how McClure and his men survived four forbidding winters

Operations order 1-97 : (Operation Bold Leap) by Robert John Le Mesurier McClure( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States military is facing increased political pressure to adjust itself to the emerging realities of a post-Cold War world while trying to recapitalize within flat defense budgets. Internationally, while dangers abound, serious threats to the homeland or our vital interests remain vague. Domestic priorities such as budget balancing and entitlement programs have not only eclipsed a needed national debate on defense, but made continued economic growth increasingly a matter of national security if; for no other reason, for the tough choices between defense and baby boomer pensions it permits us to avoid. Nowhere are all these pressures more evident than in the Army, the one service that has seen its operational mission load increase over 300% since 1989 while its budget has dropped 40% in real terms. In this report LTC McClure argues in a novel format, an adapted operations order, that the Army should downsize more now, muster resources, and 'skip' a generation to the weapons, equipment and organizations needed to confront America's next near peer land power competitor beyond 2010
