Course Description

In this course, we will trace the evolution of naval technologies and doctrines from the Industrial Revolution to the First World War, 1800 to 1914. We will follow the development of steam power, new weapons, improved metallurgy, and advanced hull designs. We will examine how these new technologies influenced the ways naval power was conceptualized. We will review the new tactics and doctrines that emerged and how they affected national strategies. We will look specifically at the ideas of Alfred Thayer Mahan, Julian Corbett, and the Jeune Ecole. Finally, we will evaluate the extent to which naval warfare in this period reinforced or contradicted these theorists. | Lecture (plus questions); Facilitated discussion
