Harris Laning (a.); Mark Russell Shulman (ed. & intro.); A.K. Cebrowski (foreword). Memoirs of Admiral Harris Laning, who was Pres. of the Naval War College (NWC) from 1930 to 1933. These recollections are not merely a “yarn” or the reminiscences of a distinguished naval officer. In fact, Adm. Laning’s career coincided exactly with the rise of the U.S. Navy from a small & technologically obsolete service to the world’s largest & most advanced naval org. His leadership of the NWC occurred when many of the ideas about the conduct of naval warfare received detailed attention from a great number of men who would implement those ideas a dozen years later. Also includes Laning’s opening address delivered before the NWC staff & classes of 1931; & Laning’s thesis written while a student in 1921, “The Naval Battle.”  Illustrated.
