Description

Digesting History: The U.S. Naval War College, the Lessons of World War II, and Future Naval Warfare, 1945–1947, by Professor Hal M. Friedman, studies the contribution of the Naval War College, especially in the presidency of Admiral Raymond Spruance, to strategic thought during the first critical postwar years-that is, between the end of World War 2 and the formulation of Containment.

This transition period is especially valuable as a window through which to explore institutions such as the College in transition from a hot war to a cold one. While seminal studies exist of the College's work in the interwar years, none have been published on this period.

Naval War College Historical Monograph Series, 17. Winner of the North American Society for Oceanic History's John Lyman Book Award.

This is a companion book to Blue Versus Orange: The U.S. Naval War College, Japan and the Old Enemy in the Pacific, 1945-46.

Audience

This publication would be useful to new members of the military to train them to recognize the importance of military history to military leadership and strategy.  In addition, this publication would be beneficial to military leaders teaching new recruits, historians and students studying military history, and members of the general public interested in military history.
