First and foemost, this blog is an excursion into the most intriguing questions, theories and musings that continue to facinate naval historians. It is a meeting place where renowned scholars and self-taught history buffs linger and share ideas and prespective on naval events that shape nations.
The Naval History Blog is hosted by two organizations steeped in the traditions of naval history, which see it as a cornerstone of their missions. The U.S. Naval Institute and the Naval History & Heritage Command are working together to bring their considerable intellectual resources and passion for naval history to this destinationThe official announcement of this new blog by Tom Wilkerson, Major General, USMC (Ret.), U.S. Naval Institute and Jay A. DeLoach, Rear Admiral, USN (Ret.) Director of the Naval History & Heritage Command, speaks to the heart of what this new blog is all about.
The blog is still on the stays; has just been christened, and will be commissioned and launched this coming week.
I am honored to have been invited to be a plank owner in this excellent endeavour.
