"The undeniable but little understood impact of sea power on the modern history of the world is the essence of Lisle Rose's masterful Power at Sea; thought-provoking and a good read."—Edward J. Marolda, Senior Historian, Naval Historical Center
“Lisle Rose writes with a verve that few historians possess. Here are three books on a magisterial subject, each done with the éclat it deserves. No other writer about sea power in the machine age has managed such an achievement.”—Robert H. Ferrell
