About the Author

Arne Roksund, Ph. D. (2005) in History, University of Oslo, is Rear Admiral and Commander Norwegian Defence Education Command and Commandant Norwegian National Defence College.


"This book provides the English language reader with the only up-to-date study of this curious development since the appearance of Theodore Ropp's dissertation-turned-book. Roksund has made some significant additions by using primary sources in the French Navy's archives which were closed to Ropp when he did his research in the 1930s. The result is a tight story which begins with the French Navy's surrender of her budget to finance the rebuilding of the Army after 1870 and ends with the emergence of the submarine as the first viable weapon to do what the Jeune Ecole proposed-wage a guerre de course." Chalmers Hood in Journal of Military History 72/1, Jan 2008
