This work examines how the navies of Great Britain, the USA, Germany, Japan, the Soviet Union, France and Italy confronted the various technological changes posed during different periods in the 20th century. The 20th century was the technologically most dynamic period in naval history. Changes ranging from submarines and airpower to space platforms, dramatically altered assumptions about the future of naval warfare. The different sections in this volume, which cover the years before World War I, before World War II, during the Cold War, and even into the medium-term future, discuss how the great naval powers integrated these different changes into their warship building and war planning. It is without doubt one of the crucial issues that has confronted and will continue to confront naval planners. The proper integration of technological advances has been perhaps the most important element in determining the course of naval power over the past 100 years.

The pages 63 and 64 are missing. It is not a problem of a single copy but of every copy of this book.

Phillips Payson O'Brien has put together a set of essays broadly related to the topic of the title. They are divided into four sections covering how navies responded to the imperatives of technology in the era before WWI, the time between wars, the Cold War period, and the post Cold War timeframe we are in. The first three sections are historical in nature and the last section more in the nature of speculation as it reasonably would be.

The first section has essays covering the Italian, Japanese, French, German, and British Navies. Of these, the most striking as the effort by Nicholas Lambert to convince us that Sir John Fisher had a quite specific and unique strategic agenda that drove his technology agenda. Since many commentators have viewed Fisher as a man adopting technology with no clear sense of strategy, Lambert has his work cut out for him and discharges it with considerable success.

In the second section which covers the Japanese, German, British and US Navies the essay by Mark Peattie on the Japanse Navy is just a synopsis of his and Evans books on the same subject. Werner Rahn does a good job explaining how the German Navy started the war in a strategically meaningless position but the strong connection with technology is not really made. Jon Sumida does a masterly job of dealing with Royal Navy rearmament and preparation for war. He makes a convincing case that the RN took emerging technology well into account given budgetary and organizational issues such as the administration of the Fleet Air Arm. He makes the telling point that decisions about war fighting platform capabilities were made with the rational assumption that the French coast would stay in Allied hands. The editor has an essay that covers the impact of arms control treaties on USN development and makes the case that their net benefit was positive. This is an interesting and persuasively made argument but not directly related to technology per se.

The third section covers just the US, Soviet and Royal Navies, counting them as the only full size navies of the Cold War ers. The essay by Evan Mawdsley on the Gorshkov era is interesting due to it's insight into Soviet political and foreign policy constraints and influences. The Eric Grove essay on the RN highlights the role of Lord Mountbatten as First Sea Lord keeping the British Navy somewhat inordinately large in extent and influence. George Baer does a good job of matching platform development to strategic purpose in US Navy Cold War planning and construction. Both the essays on the USN and RN are likely constrainted by lack of access to currently restricted or classified documents.

The last section begins the speculation and the essay by Dave Andrews highlights the limitations of Kindle in nonfiction as it is impossible to gain value from the numerous charts and illustrations which are almost essential to fully understand the text. Geoffrey Till has written a good high level review from the British strategic perspective and Norman Friedman gives a good view of how technology not specifically related to ships will have a strong influence on the shape of future navies.
