Statesmen and Sea Power

By Admiral Sir Herbert Richmond
Oxford University Press, 1947
369 pp. $5.00

Starting with the Age of Elizabeth, Admiral Richmond shows how British statesmen, as distinguished from the professional sailors, provided for the growth and power of the British Navy through long-range planning and direction. This penetrating study is an expansion of the Ford Lectures delivered at Oxford in 1943 and was published shortly before the author's death.
