By Hal M. Friedman
The seventeenth in our Historical Monograph series—Digesting History: The U.S. Naval War College, the Lessons of World War Two, and Future Naval Warfare, 1945–1947—is available for sale by the Government Printing Office’s online bookstore. Dr. Friedman, professor of modern history at Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, Michigan, describes how the staff, instructors, and students at the Naval War College attempted between 1945 and 1947 to determine the shape of future wars and what the Navy would have to do in order to prepare to fight those wars in a Cold War context.
