The book integrates the historical evolution of tactics, analysis, and fleet operations, and today it can serve as a primer for anyone who wants to learn how navies fight and win. This second edition includes much new material on combat in the missile age and reflects the reconfiguration of many tactics for littoral operations after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Hughes recreates famous battles to show how tactics have changed through the ages and the ways in which they have remained unchanged. He covers tactical interaction between land and sea, the sensory revolution of WWII, secret weapons and maritime surprise, the role in battle of leadership and morale, and the importance of surface warships in today's U.S. fleet. He suggests that naval tactics, unlike ground combat, are dominated by the offense and concludes that the great tactical maxim must be attack effectively first.

A new chapter traces the evolution of missile tactics at sea and includes details of attacks on ships. Many changes emphasize joint operations and coastal combat. The already extensive appraisal of command and control and information warfare is further expanded to cover modern naval operations and the character of modern salvo warfare. In the tradition of Mahan and Clauswitz, this classic text incorporates literature, politics, and a knowledge of human nature. Indispensable reading for all those interested in naval tactics, it is also a valuable reference for wargamers.

The author has a very smooth writing style that makes this easy to read and follow. I was skeptical going in on the significance of littoral combat, but am now a believer.

Great Book Great Author. CAPT Wayne Hughes truly is a model Sailor-scholar! Comprehensive is probably a good word to describe this text. If the title does not interest you, don't buy it. If it does, buy it. I think that it should be required reading for all Naval Officers.

If you're non-military like me and want to know how naval warfare works today, this book explains how the technology and tactics have changed in the past few centuries. If you're a game designer and want to understand how missile combat works, read this book. If you want to argue about aircraft carriers and the DF-21D, read this book first. Yes it is a few years old now, but the underlying principles haven't changed.
  • Balladolbine
In a class of its own. This is the definitive work on the subject of naval tactics, a fine work of history, a joy to read. A triumph.

I have the 1st edition. Glad they did an update with the modern situations going on now.
  • Cointrius
Very interesting and informative. If you're into this kind of thing, it's a fine work.

As a Lieutenant Commander, I recommend the book to improve tactics general knowledge.
The dismanteling of the Soviet Union brought about a fundamental shift in how we analyze the role of a modern nuclear navy. Large fleet to fleet battles between technologically sophisticated opponents is still a remote possibility, however, surface group actions of the future will certainly resemble smaller more tactical battles as well. The idea of skirmishes and close-quarters combat between vessles must be understood. So to the more immense multi-unit combat possibilities.
This is the spectrum "Fleet Tactics" seeks to analyze. It does this remarkabley well. It also explores more intangible factors. Moral and leadership are terms often used but rarely integrated into a coherant strategy towards victory. It seems taken for granted, but the author shows how we must take nothing for granted when restructuring our tactical phillospohy. Re-examining age old ideas and historic battles is only one side of the coin. Here, we have a book that does this but holds up such notions for the purpose of building better tactical thinking.
I have read both the original edition and this newe, updated one... the changes are clear. We have a book that picks up where naval theory as of 1990 left off. While still managing to represent its original content with value towards the tactician in naval warfare.
Read this book is you are interested in more than just bland analyses of age old battles. Read it if you want to develope a strong understanding of how naval conflicts of almost every kind should be fought. Read it if you want to develope a sound understanding of the timeless tactical cornerstones in naval strategy.
