More > Though dealing alone with the Rudiments of the art, it was reprinted in America, and in 1853 the New York Tribune described it as being ' unpretentious and practical.' It being now rewritten after the experience of forty years, I trust the reader will find the same qualities still in these nejv pages. In 1862, the Rev. Mr Vickers of Boston, America, then visiting England, informed me that he took up, in a New York book-shop, a copy of a work entitled. Public Speaking and Debate, by John Bower. Upon opening it he found that it was an American edition of Public Speaking and Debate, by G. J. Holyoake, with the name of the author borne by another. This, I hope, may be taken as proof that the book was thought useful by the new author.< Less

Naval Transformation, Ground Forces, And The Expeditionary Impulse: The Sea-Basing Debate By Geoffrey Till & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $15.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
In an expeditionary age where the modern emphasis is upon joint operations, it is easy to forget the extent of the contribution that naval forces may make, and indeed need to make, to the successful... More > conclusion of operations ashore. This Letort Paper focuses on the modern concept of sea-basing but argues that in an era of naval transformation, it is important to remember that the maritime effect on land operations is far greater than that. The author, Dr. Geoffrey Till, demonstrates that point by making extensive use of allied, and particularly British, experience to set alongside American views and uses his subject to investigate the whole concept of naval transformation in the early 21st century. His conclusion is that, while there certainly are novel aspects to sea-basing, the concept, if not the words, would have been familiar to the navies of the past.< Less
