I have been asked to speak about the evolution of naval power and, particularly, to identify the characteristics of an effective naval force out to the year 2010. My attempt to do so is divided into three parts. After some necessary preliminaries, I offer seven propositions that deal with the future of naval power, broadly considered, and with alternatives for the development and use of naval forces. I conclude by drawing implications for a nation such as France.
