A convenient collection of back issues of the Naval War College’s scholarly and policy
journal, the Naval War College Review. Founded in late 1949 as the Naval War College
Information Service for Officers to give midgrade officers of the Navy and Marine Corps
educational benefits available to resident students, the journal was renamed in 1952.
Until 1954 the journal was classified “Restricted”; all issues are now declassified, and
today the Naval War College Review circulates worldwide in print and on the Internet.
A few issues that could not be scanned are omitted from this collection, but photo-
copies of their articles can be obtained from the editorial offices, at (401) 841-2236
