Overview

In Maritime Dominion Peter Padfield examines the historical influence of naval power. Taking the reader from 1852 to the present day, his work covers the ascent of the United States into the role left open by Britain¹s decline, and the position of Russian and Germany as contrary powers.

Praise

“Peter Padfield is one of the most distinguished naval historians”
-Navy News

“Mr. Padfield’s outstanding book [Maritime Supremacy] is an attempt to show how maritime power has affected not only geo-politics but also governing principles. Along the way, he offers up naval campaigns and sea battles as vivid as any you will find in Patrick O¦Brien.”
-Wall Street Journal
