Abstract:

"The third in a series, this collection of interpretive, biographical essays on the admirals of the new steel navy continues the story of the development of the American naval tradition begun so successfully in 'Command Under Sail' and 'Captains of the Old Steam Navy'. In this new volume the focus is on the years between 1880 and 1930, a period marked by exceptional change in the United States. The U.S. Navy, in particular, underwent a significant transformation as it adapted to new technologies and grew to meet the responsibilities thrust upon it by America's new role as a world power."--Jacket.
