"Americans . . . are often unaware of a greater danger: the Russians' determined drive to become masters of the sea on which America's very life depends."
Eller traces the growth of American sea power from World War II (where the Navy emerged as the preeminent power in the world) through Korea and Vietnam. He also charts the Soviet drive to counter the U.S. Navy and take their place as a first class naval power in their own right. It is a recurring theme throughout world history, whenever there is a dominent nation (on sea or land) that others strive to catch up with. We know the initial outcomes of the Cold War, but how will this same theme play out for current and future generations?; 7" - 9" Tall
