Table of Contents
- Command and Control: Changeless—Yet Changing
Rear Adm. Donald T Poe, USN
We think we can cope with Vietnam II or even with Nuclear
War I; but what could be our undoing is a conflict that is bigger than the former and smaller than the latter.
- V/STOL: Stalled?
R. M. Braybrook
Five years after Harrier, there is no indication that those responsible for the Free World's combat aircraft development are doing much thinking about v/STOL.
Lt. Cdr. George T. Coker, USN
Sooner or later, to every P.W. taken in Vietnam, as to every other P.W. throughout history, two questions occurred: What is worth enduring torture for? What is worth dying for?
- The Military and Politics
Maj. H. J. Sage, USMC
In the past, when the President has said "Go!", the military man has gone, unquestioning. He may go again, or he may stop to inquire about his civil liberties or to discuss electoral politics.
- Navies in War and in Peace
Admiral of the Fleet S. G. Gorshkov, SN
Admiral Gorshkov deplores visits by U. S. warships to foreign ports as attempts to coerce and intimidate; but he sees similar visits by Soviet warships as friendly and magnanimous.
- The Sultan's Submarines
V. Irnsing Collins
In 1885, the Greek government purchased a Nordenfelt-built submarine and, with war between Greece and Turkey more imminent than usual, Turkey bought two from Nordenfelt.
Teach was his name and "Teaching" was on its way to becoming a very painful process until a Royal Navy lieutenant intervened to teach Teach his last lesson.
