Description
(Named Best Book of the Year in 1973 by Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society) When this book first appeared in 1972, former naval officer Peter Karstenólater the editor of the three-volume Encyclopedia on War and American Societyówas taken to task for his portrayal of the Naval Academy and the officer corps. Although his conclusions riled a few senior officers, no one denied the significance of the study. Updated with a new preface and foreword, it is a revelatory portrait of the American naval officer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when the United States emerged as a world power and its navy developed into a professional fighting force.
