Fine / Near Fine. ISBN: 0700610715. 346pp. The Kaiser's theorists have long been portrayed as narrow-minded thinkers wedded to an outmoded way of war, little altered since Napoleon's time. According to this view, they ignored or simply failed to understand how industrialization and modernization had transformed the conduct of war. They seemed unaware of how numerous advances in technology and weaponry had so increased the power of the defensive that decisive victory had become virtually impossible. But Echevarria disputes this traditional view and convincingly shows that these theorists--Boguslawski, Goltz, Schlieffen, Hoenig, and their American and European counterparts--were not the architects of outmoded theories. In fact, they duly appreciated the implications of the vast advances in modern weaponry (as well as in transportation and communications) and set about finding solutions that would restore offensive maneuver to the battlefield.

First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Cloth. Very Good / Very Good. 362 pages, illus, end paper maps, notes, bibliog, index. Yearning for foreign approval, the United States between December of 1907 and February of 1909 engaged in the most glittering prestige ploy it had ever attempted: spurred by the irrepressible Teddy Roosevelt, it sent its "Grand Fleet" of sixteen lumbering white battleships on a diplomatic tour of the globe. At a time when battle fleets the world over were being painted a camouflaging gray, the Great White Fleet perhaps best symbolized the naivete of America in the twilight of its innocence. Commanded by the famous "Fighting Bob" Evans, who was mostly confined below with gout, the fleet adventured 45,000 miles and visited six continents. The story of this voyage, from its first port of call to its return welcome from the Presidential yacht, is a marvelous mixture of the epic, the tragic, and the sheerly comic. $27.50
