This issue marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Naval War College Review. Soon after the Second World War, Admiral Raymond Spruance, who was then President of the College, responded to a suggestion from the Chief of Naval Personnel and initiated the Information Service for Officers. Published each month during the College's academic year, these small journals contained three or four lectures which had been given at the College, so that officers who were not in Newport might benefit from the activities conducted here.
